It is certainly not a good thing that the sports injury website physioroom.com shows that the Gunners have more players in the treatment room than all of [.
The best thing to happen over the next week from an Arsenal fan's point of view would be for the manager of the Chile national team to err on the side of caution and not play our striker Alexis Sanchez in their World Cup qualifier and for the former Barcelona star to arrive back in [...]
Arsenal fans may have at first been worried about Alexis Sanchez recovering from his muscle tear in time to face Man United next week, but according to the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio the player himself has told his friends: "It is hurting a bit but I'm fine. I'll be back for Tuesday." A source in [.
When Arsene Wenger gave us the latest Arsenal injury update the other day, there was a lot of concern that our annual bad luck was coming back to cause us problems at the worst possible time, with the first north London derby of the season coming on Sunday. Although it still looks like the manmager [.
Could this be the season when everything finally comes together for Arsenal? It has certainly started well, with Wenger getting all three needed players in all three needed positions during the transfer window. Perhaps he could have bought them a little earlier but Hey Ho! So we now have the right players in the right [.

As if it was not bad enough that Arsenal lost our first game of the Premier League season yet again, and just like in our opening day defeat to West Ham last season it was a home game, we did so after dominating the first half and taking the lead against a lacklustre Liverpool side. [...]
You could not make it up, but for Arsenal fans who have become used to the terrible bad luck of the club on the injury side of things, it was somehow typical that we were hit by another blow. The fact that it was Gabriel, when the defence was already so thinly spread after Mertesacker's [...]
Well that did not take long Arsene! Just a few days after Arsenal fans were given the bad news about our seemingly constant problems on the injury front striking at the heart of the Gunners back line, with the German World Cup winning centre back Per Mertesacker ruled out for a significant part of the [.
Arsenal fans are usually more worried about our top players getting injured in the meaningless international friendlies that we are forced to endure at various times during the season, but there is also the danger that we can get long term problems playing at the major tournaments. So it's no surprise when our first injury [.
Danny Welbeck has been ruled out for the next five months with a knee injury, meaning he will miss out on the European Championships as well as the opening three months of the Premier League, which may force Arsenal to sign another forward The 25 year-oldwas preparing himself for an exciting European Championship tournament this [.
What to make of Jack's comeback! By Ash Arsenal fought hard to scrape a 2-2 draw with Manchester City today, in a game that was anticipated to show which way the league will be swinging inthe race for the top four. Wewere not at their best, but neither were they... It's been a common occurrence [.

Arsene Wenger today revealed that every single member of his first-team squad is available for the upcoming league fixture, which is a first for the campaign. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla have been back in full training for this week, meaning there are no longer any playersforced to sit on the sidelines, and the pair [.
The brilliant Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla was sorely missed when he got injured way back in November, and his absence coincided with the Gunners drastic dip in form. It was widely publcised that the little Spanish wizard would return for the second leg of the Champions League tie against Barcelona, but he is still not [.
Jack Wilshere was expected to be available to make his first Premier League appearance of the season for Arsenal on Thursday, but he will have to wait. The Enland midfielder has been ruled out of action since pre-season, and hasn't featured in the Premier League since May of last year. Wilshere is nearing a return [.
Jack Wilsherefeatured for Arsenal's Under-21 side tonight against West Bromwich Albion, and gave his coaches a fright before being allowed to see the match out. The England international was making his third appearance since recovering from a leg injury which has prevented him from playing a second of Premier League football this season.
So the Arsenal boss gave another of his many positive injury predictions before the current international break, and I seem to recall the Frenchman saying that at least two of the first team players currently on the Arsenal injury list would be back in action after the break and I am pretty sure the word [.
Arsenal fans are more than used to seeing our injured stars taking ten times longer to recover than their predicted return dates, especially with Jack Wilshere who has been projected to return every month since Christmas, but the Gunners were certainly expecting our injury list to be reduced after this international break.
The good news for Arsenal and our injury hit midfield star Jack Wilshere is that the England national coach seems to be a massive fan of the 24-year old. Roy Hodgson has always tried to find a place in his squad and the starting line up for Wilshere no matter what fitness concerns there might [...
Arsenal are claimed to have toldthe Evening Standard's James Olley that Jack Wilshere has not suffered an injury setback. The England international has not featured in the Premier League since May of last year, after suffering a broken leg last summer, before suffering a number of set-backs.

It is a good thing that the Arsenal boss has a pretty good understanding and working relationship with his opposite number from the England national team, because Arsene Wenger may have to ask for a helping hand from Roy Hodgson over the next week or so. Wenger is not the sort to do a Fergie [...]
The post How England can stop Arsenal striker crisis for Watford clash appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
The Arsenal and England striker Danny Welbeck was a long time out of action due to the unpredictably long injury lay-off that began last season, so I can understand why Arsene Wenger has been cautious about bringing him back. But it is now over a month since he scored that last gasp winner over Leicester [.
I did wonder at the time whether Arsene Wenger was right to allow the arsenal and France right back Mathieu Debuchy go out on loan for the rest of the season. The player was unhappy about his lack of playing time and it was clear that the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin had nailed down the [...]
I know that most Arsenal fans will think I'm joking when I continually say that Jack Wilshere will not play at all this season, but every time Arsene Wenger talks about him it is only to tell us of the Englishman's latest setback. Just over a month ago Arsene told us that Jack had started [...]
Now we are getting to squeaky-bum time as Alex Ferguson used to say, and we are going to need as many players fit as possible, especially when Arsenal are getting closer to the Finals of the FA Cup and the Champions League, as well as pulling away at the top of the Premiership.... We have [...]
Did you hear the cheers from the Arsenal fans yesterday when Tomas Rosicky made his first appearance of the season against Burnley yesterday? It was great to see Little Mozart back where he belongs, but yet again he has been hit by Arsenal's injury curse and suffered another thigh injury during the game and will [.
Although Arsenal had little chance of beating Chelsea after the first 23 minutes when we were a goal down plus a man down, the team did try hard to break through and get an equalizer. But the deficencies in midfield were clear for all to see. That is why it is great news today that [...]
I am not sure if this rumour is even believable considering that Jack Wilshere has hardly played for Arsenal in the last two seasons, but knowing Arsene Wenger's fetish for keeping all his English players in the squad it wouldn't really surprise me... So apparently Jack is going to be with us to the end [.
I suppose you could feel a little bit sorry for those members of the football media and TV pundits that have thrived on their anti-Arsenal comments in recent years, because they have had a pretty thin diet to feed on this season as Arsene Wenger has got the Gunners playing the best football in the [.
As we headed towards the end of the busy festive football period, Arsenal were looking good, but also looking ahead to what appeared to be a tough run of games over the first month of the new calendar year. It is so far so good for the Gunners after winning all three matches following the [...]
