Wenger: Arsenal Must Analyze its Injury Crisis

MOST COMMENTED

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal must analyze its injury crisis "very deeply," and says it is a "concern" as the North London club continues to challenge for the Premier League title. Speaking to the press on Friday ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash at city rival Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Wenger insisted that many player absences are down to “bad luck” but he also indicated that the club’s training methods may have to change, too.

Heading into the North London derby this weekend, the Gunners will be without Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil, who tore his hamstring against Bayern Munich on Tuesday and is now set to miss three to six weeks. The sheer number of injuries led Dutch physiotherapist Raymond Verheijen to question Arsenal’s training methods.

"I am concerned that that happens," Wenger said when asked about Arsenal’s injury crisis. "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 analyzing very deeply why it happened to see if there is a link between these injuries.”
