The time has finally come: Arsenal have been overtaken in the race for fourth… in the Injury League.

The Eagles have been knocking on the Gunners’ door for a number of weeks now and, with eight injuries, they’ve broken into the top four, forcing Arsenal down to fifth.

Arsenal currently have ‘just’ Santi Cazorla (ankle), Mesut Ozil (hamstring), Petr Cech (calf), Lucas Perez (calf) and Kieran Gibbs (knock) sidelined.

Elsewhere, Hull are still top, closely followed by Sunderland with West Ham bringing up the rear in third.
