Arsenal manager has officially confirmed Francis Coquelin is out for “at least” two months. Earlier yesterday news broke that the Frenchman has damaged his kneel although at the point, the news was not confirmed by any major outlet which gave Arsenal fans the hope that the rumour could be false.
With Wenger now confirming the news, Arsenal not buying an outfield player last summer is finally showing to be a stupid move ( everyone knew it was a stupid move anyway ). Wenger went further to confirm Calum Chambers is been trained to play in the defensive midfield role.
This brings to question the point of signing Krystian Biliek last winter. The young Poland international was said to be Arsenal’s back up defensive midfielder but ever since he signed for the club, he has only made one appearance, as a sub in the disgraceful defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.
Personally, I believe Chambers can play the role of a DM but that does not override the fact that Wenger’s stubbornness has once again practically ruined Arsenal’s chance to win the title after a 11 years wait.
