Posted on November 27, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal and England midfield star Jack Wilshere was due to have a scan today to determine the extent of the ligament damage cause when the young Manchester United defender Paddy McNair went into a late tackle with his studa into Wilshere’s ankle last weekend.

And the news was not good and meant that the 22-year old needed surgery, so without further ado the young Gunner wqent straight under the knife. The good news reported by Arsenal.com is that the surgery was successful. The bad news is that Wilshere will now be out of action for about three months.

It is getting beyond a joke for Arsenal now! We get Olivier Giroud back early and Laurent Koscielny back in the squad just in time for them to be replaced by even more Gunners and it has been like this since the start of last season.

Including Abou Diaby, who Arsene Wenger denied having a new injury but is clearly still not fit enough to play, the Gunners now have 10 players on the injury list. Two of those, Mikel Arteta and Yaya Sanogo, joined it last night and with Ozil, Walcott, Welbeck, Wilshere, Debuchy, Szczesny and Ospina already out of action, it leaves the manager with a massive headache, as he made clear in his post match words reported by The Guardian.

It will not surprise many Arsenal fans to know that Arsene Wenger is facing a big selection headache going into a crucial game, because that has been pretty much the story of the last two years. The names of Jack Wilshere, Wojciech Szczesny and Olivier Giroud have been added to the list for the visit of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, so how will the manager line up his Gunners?

The Arsenal and England international midfielder Jack Wilshere has not quite joined his central midfield team mate Abou Diaby on the injury front yet, but our young star must be cursing his luck today. Arsene Wenger has revealed that the injury picked up by Wilshere after a late challenge by the Manchester United defender Paddy McNair is not just a minor one after all, forcing the Gunner to face another lengthy spell on the sidelines, as reported by The Guardian.

Despite all the talk in the media about the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United having lost a lot of it’s glamour and importance in the last 10 years, the match at the Emirates stadium today is massive, there is no doubt about it, especially for both clubs.

To be honest, with Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham all struggling as well, there is a good chance that both clubs will finish in the top four, but whoever wins today will take a big step towards it and lay a big blow on their rivals. Arsenal could finish as high as fourth place if we win, while a loss could see us drop to as low as 12th place, so it is clear how important it is to win.

Giroud not worried about Arsenal buying Welbeck 0

The French striker Olivier Giroud has returned to full fitness for Arsenal, but may still need to some time to get back to match fitness gained by having time on the pitch. One would expect him to worry about having to fight for his place in the team after the arrival of Danny Welbeck at the Emirates, but the French international thinks it will be good for both him and especially the team.

“Danny has done really well up to now, but I am not worried that we have bought Danny.” said Giroud. “I think we will have a good understanding on the pitch and can play together, that is the main thing, we are quite complementary.

BIG boost for Arsenal as Welbeck fit to face Man United 0

It is probably just as big a relief for Danny Welbeck as it is for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans, to be fair. Because the slight hamstring strain that the 230year old striker picked up while on international duty could not have come at a worse time for Welbeck, as it looked like it might stop our new centre forward from facing his former club.

It is not as if Welbeck feels any particular resentment towards them, as he is a Manchester lad and clearly has a lot of respect for the club. But it is always a special occasion for any player to face his old club, especially when you have something to prove.

It is perhaps a bigger concern for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger than it would be at most clubs, because of the crippling injury list that the club has had to cope with in recent years, including the way last season’s Premier League title challenge fell away when we lost the likes of Theo Walcott.

And the flying England forward who is just coming back from that long term injury has told Talksport that his new team mate Alexis Sanchez is giving his team mates and manager a little cause for concern about his own fitness.

Danny Welbeck has dome pretty well since he signed for Arsenal back on transfer deadline day, especially when you consider that he had been given very little opportunity to play in his new centre forward role during his time as a Manchester United player.

So even though he has missed a few chances and has not always had the heavy influence on a game that we might hope, the Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have got plenty of patience with him, especially as we have the Chile international Alexis Sanchez chipping in with goals and playing very well.

Latest injury news means MORE problems for Arsenal 0

When will it ever end for Arsenal. It feels like somebody is punishing Arsene Wenger and the Gunners for something because every time it looks like we are coming out of the injury crisis then it rears up again. At this rate the club might as well set up a hospital at the Emirates.

The latest news sees two more players ruled out while the manager reveals that Theo Walcott is still not really ready for action. We may see the England international forward at some point in the away match at Sunderland, but certainly not from the start.
