Yaya Sanogo is alive and well and training on his own at London Colney but the existence of Lucas Perez is still open to debate.
The young Frenchman was spotted during an open training session today at the club. Missing the whole season, the only information Arsenal have delivered is that he is suffering from a ‘secret’ injury. We contact his agent yesterday, before Sanogo was spotted, to see if we could get an update on what’s going on. At the time of writing we’ve had no reply.
Like the Loch Ness monster, all we have is this grainy shot of Yaya in the distance:

As is the way of things at Arsenal, if one comes back then another must vanish and it didn’t take people long to notice that Lucas was missing.

As with most things involving Lucas, we have no idea what this means.
He did pick up a bit of a knock last week which is why he missed the Chelsea game, but given his involvement against Hull, we assumed he was fine.
Perhaps he has suffered a recurrence of that problem.
