Ahead of their game away at West Ham United tomorrow, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been debating as to who or not should start in Arsene Wenger’s midfield.
While the Gunners’ squad has obvious deficiencies throughout it, the engine room doesn’t naturally appear to be one, considering the talent available in those berth in north London.
Still, as deeply stacked as that area is, reports from the Sun have the Emirates faithful propping up the bar in sour spirits.
They’ve revealed Santi Cazorla will be out of action for up to three months, ruling the classy Spaniard out of the typically frantic festive period.
One of the most popular players amongst our punters, the 31-year-old reportedly requires surgery to his plantaris tendon, which may well rule him out for up to three months.
Though there are plenty of options, losing such a key man ahead of such a busy period and joins a lengthy injury list for Le Prof to contend with.
The likes of Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud, Hector Bellerin and Pe Mertesacker have also suffered recent ailments and the Gunners in the Tavern believe they’ve seen it all before, as the wheels start to come off their title tilt.
