This week has been tough for Arsenal injury-wise but somehow they’ve managed to stay fourth in the Injury League.
Not only did Arsenal lose Laurent Koscielny midweek during the second half of the Bayern Munich shambles but Mohamed Elneny’s calf, which had been optimistically hanging in their since the Africa Cup of Nations, finally gave up the ghost and Alex Iwobi has inexplicably hurt his ankle!
Add to this the fact that we also still have Santi Cazorla (ankle) and Aaron Ramsey out of action (calf). Sigh.
