Arsenal are still in fourth place in this season’s Premier League injury league.
They’ve been there for an age, and it did seem like they would slip to fifth this week, but, you know, it’s Arsenal. Everton, who were breathing down the Gunners neck last week by just two points are now four better off than Arsene Wenger’s men.
Sunderland’s run at the top of the table looks like it will keep going for a while yet, especially when you factor in Paddy McNair’s season-ending knee injury. Their lead, which was seven points last week, has been cut back to five this week so there is hope for them.
