Injuries have effected Arsenal’s season, claims Arteta

Mikel Arteta has in the Daily Telegraph blamed Arsenal’s injury problems on the Gunners’ mediocre form before Christmas, insisting that if the club could find a settled line-up the outcome may have been different.



Arteta is quoted as saying: “We have been hit with important, long-term injuries the whole season that really, really affect the team. Now we are starting to do it and we are starting to get really good results, so for me the biggest concern is to stop the injuries.


Arsenal have been without England midfielder Jack Wilshere for the entire season after the player suffered an ankle injury during a pre-season friendly, while full-back Bacary Sagna, defenders Thomas Vermaelen and Per Mertesacker and midfielder Tomas Rosicky have all missed significant portions of the season. Germany international Mertesacker has been missing since February with an ankle injury.


Arsene Wenger’s side are currently enjoying a seven game unbeaten run in the Premier League that began with a 7-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers in late February. But prior to hammering the relegation strugglers Arsenal lay seventh in the table, 12 points adrift of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur who were third. Arsenal now lead Tottenham by three points.
