Arsene Wenger concerned by Arsenal’s mounting injuries
Arsene Wenger admits his concern at Arsenal's expanding injury list at a crucial stage of the season
Arsene Wenger has admitted his concern at Arsenal’s expanding injury list at a crucial stage of the season.
The north Londoners were hit with the news that Mesut Ozil will be sidelined for between three and six weeks after picking up a hamstring injury during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Bayern Munich.
We are analysing very deeply why it happened to see if there is a link between these injuries
Ozil joins Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere on the Gunners’ treatment table ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham.
And the Frenchman is waiting on the results of a club investigation into why his team have suffered so many injuries.
“I am concerned that that happens,” Wenger said. “If you look at our overall injury list going into such a final decisive part of the season, we have no Wilshere, Walcott, Ozil, Ramsey.
“We went to Bayern with no [Kieran] Gibbs or [Nacho] Monreal. Of course it is a concern. We are analysing very deeply why it happened to see if there is a link between these injuries.
“Walcott, it is completely bad luck. Wilshere I don’t think it is linked with the other injuries, it is linked more with his history and the kick he got. The rest maybe we have to find out why it happened.”
