Arsenal have been doing fantastic so far this season and have remained at the top of the English Premier League table with joint leaders Manchester City but have had to struggle in their last matches with the many injuries affecting the team at the Emirates.
However, the Gunners have been saved by the bell with the International break which could not have come at a better time for the Gunners according to manager Arsene Wenger.
“[Against Tottenham] We had restricted options on the bench because of injuries and that makes the game difficult” Wenger said this after the game against Tottenham Hotspur where they played a one all draw, with defender Kieran Gibbs having to come on as a winger due to the limited options and becoming the saviour as he scored the equaliser for Arsenal in the match.
The Gunner are without 10 outfield players at the moment and this leaves them with a very small squad and the manager Wenger is hopeful that by the time the international break is over, some injured players will have returned and no fit player will be lost during the international break.
He said, “I am delighted because we gain two weeks’ treatment for the 10 players who are not available at the moment, and I hope that after these two weeks we do not lose more, and get some back”
There is a bright light in the horizon though as recent news confirm that winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be back from his injury by the time the international break is over and hopefully, the likes of Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey will soon return to action for the team too.
