It is usual to see the Arsenal players take turns to the treatment room. Surprisingly, the club ranks low on the injury front despite having six of its stars out injured, since the likes of Manchester City, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Liverpool all rank higher in ascending order.
While we all know that Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta are the latest to enter the treatment room and Francis Coquelin is to be out for about three months, the return date for Arteta is a doubt.
Wenger earlier stated that his injury was not as serious as Coquelin’s but he did not set a return date for the veteran.
The Spaniard who suffered a Calf Muscle Strain in the jinxed game against West Brom is now reported to be out of the team for nothing less than one month.
Though the fans are irked with the 33-year-old after his latest blip last week, there is no doubt the availability of some experienced players in the team could provide stability in the team when they are introduced to wade the storm against tougher opposition.
The good news is Chamberlain is back and Theo Walcott is expected to be fully fit by mid December. They will definitely help with the title push as we enter the busiest part of the season in December.
