It feels at Arsenal that our injury problems are like buses in that they always seem to come at once and so we often see a certain position severely weakened as Arsene Wenger loses two or three players in the same area of the pitch at the same time.
It has been central midfield for most of the season but at least the return of Ramsey and then Coquelin and the transfer addition of Elneny has eased that particular problem. Now, though, it looks like the prof could be faced with a bit of a crisis in the Central Attacking Midfield role.
Luckily enough we have not missed having the option of Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky too much because Mesut Ozil has been in great form and has stayed fit, but the Daily Mail has some worrying news for us this week. Apparently the German has been nursing a foot injury and even though he has been back in the team since it kept him out of the Stoke match, it is not fully fixed.
So the Arsenal medical staff have changed his training routine and are being very careful with Ozil as they try to keep him fit enough to keep playing. With Rosicky being cursed with yet another long injury as soon as he returned to the side and with Wilshere still not ready to come back, have Arsenal got a huge problem looming?
