Arsenal handed massive title blow as star ruled-out for season

CazorlaArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are wondering just what else could go wrong, as a star player is reportedly out for the season just weeks ahead of his expected recovery.

The Daily Mirror state Santi Cazorla may not feature again this season after his comeback from a knee injury was halted by another problem, this time due to his achilles.

31-year-old Spaniard Cazorla has been out of action since November and Arsenal have struggled since, though the player was expected to return in March and bolster the squad for the Premier League title run-in.

However, those hopes have taken a massive blow with Cazorla stopping training due to his latest problem– which is a massive concern for Arsenal as the veteran continues to be a hugely influential player and one that the Gunners have clearly missed in the middle of the park.

With Jack Wilshere still yet to feature this season and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain now out for up to eight weeks, our landlord is concerned that the Gunners don’t have the numbers available in the middle of the park.

Arsenal fans, how big a blow would this be? Let us know in the comments below!
