In what has been a very disappointing week for us Gooners, there’s more misery ahead of the Christmas break, with the news that The Ox is injured.
He came on as a sub, and went off as a sub a few minutes later during our poor defeat at Man City, with what Wenger called a ‘muscular problem’.
This latest injury blow comes on top of losing our most influential midfielder, and key defenders for a huge portion of our league campaign. Santi Cazorla, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi still missing, while there news on Danny Welbeck seems to be slightly better, with news he could be back in full training this week. Worth also noting that without Mustafi, we have lost all 4 games he’s missed.
Sanchez Happy But…
Alexis Sanchez has been speaking about his contract, and has said he’s happy in London, and it’s down to Arsenal to show they want to keep him.
He said: “It really doesn’t depend on me, if they want to show confidence in me. I’m very happy at the club, I love all the staff. I’m very grateful for everybody here. It depends on Arsenal, I enjoy the relationship with the fans. I want to achieve more for them. I want to win the Premier League and the Champions League…”
Sanchez looked dejected after our second defeat in a week at Man City yesterday.
