Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has lifted the lid on injury problems that he has experienced since hurting his knee at the start of the 2013/2014 season.

The England starlet picked up a knee ligament injury on the opening day of the campaign, and went on to miss next five months of action.

Posted on September 04, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy has admitted that he came close to leaving the Gunners this summer, despite the fact he only joined last summer from Newcastle for £12million.

The 30-year-old struggled with injuries last season and made just 11 Premier League starts for the north London.

The rise of Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin has not helped Debuchy’s chances of reclaiming his starting place either, as the 20-year-old has been highly-impressive since breaking into the Gunners team last season.

Debuchy spoke of his situation telling L’Equipe: “It is difficult. Even if I had not played a lot last season, in my head I would return to start after my recovery.

Will Arsenal miss Danny Welbeck? 1

Posted on September 04, 2015 by David Nugent

As revealed by one of my colleagues yesterday England international forward Danny Welbeck will be out of action for several months after having an operation on his knee.

The 24-year-old has struggled to really establish himself as a convincing first team regular for Arsenal before picking-up a knee injury in April. He has not played since and despite the injury not being thought of as serious at the time, it turned out it was more serious than first believed.

The operation will mean Welbeck misses England’s visit to San Marino In Euro 2016 qualifying on Saturday, a game that the Three Lions are odds of 1/100 to win.

There have been more bad news for Arsenal faithful following the utterly disappointing transfer deadline day as it has been revealed that England forward Danny Welbeck has undergone a surgery on his knee.

The 24-year-old has been out until April, but nobody could predict that the knee injury would prove so serious. Rather than repairing the problem instantly, Arsenal medical team hoped the striker would recover even without surgery, but it is now clear they have only been wasting precious time.

Fast forward four and a half months, and Welbeck did ultimately have his surgery, meaning he is now set to miss at least several months of action.

According to Sky Italia and the Guardian, Arsenal are set to launch a £22million bid for Juventus forward Simone Zaza in January. No sooner had the transfer window shut, there is already a rumour linking the Gunners with a striker.

Reports are suggesting the Gunners made a late attempt to sign Zaza on transfer deadline day, but the couple of magic beans that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger offered was not enough to persuade the Turin club to part-company with the forward.

Posted on September 03, 2015 by David Nugent

According to a study by, Arsenal pair Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky feature in the Premier League’s all-time XI for most time spent on the sidelines through injury.

Former-Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby, not surprisingly really is also in the eleven. The Frenchman midfielder was released by Arsenal this summer after nine injury-plagued years in north London.

Arsenal’s Jeff Raine-Adelaine named in this season’s Champions League squad 1

Posted on September 03, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made winger Jeff Raine-Adelaine a surprise addition to the Champions League squad for this season, with the 17-year-old having impressed enough in pre-season to earn a place in their European side. Signed from Lens in the summer, Raine-Adelaine featured in the Emirates Cup prior to the season starting, but hasn’t played in the Premier League in 2015/16.

He has been tipped for a bright career at the Emirates Stadium, and will be hoping he can get some game time in the group stages if Arsenal can get off to a good start in their European outings. The French youngster has made a real impact with his teammates in his debut seasons too.

Should Arsenal have retained Wellington Silva to bolster their attack? 0

Posted on September 03, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Deadline day passes without Arsenal making any new additions to the side, and questions are being asked why manager Arsene Wenger failed to bolster his attacking options.

The club loaned out Brazilian forward Wellington Silva to Championship side Bolton Wanderers earlier this month, and he arguably would have been a useful player for the Arsenal attack given the lack of depth in the side, so will they regret letting him go?

Walcott makes another plea to play centre forward 1

Posted on September 02, 2015 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Arsene Wenger’s well-documented failure to lure any big name signings this summer has left the manager with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott as the only serious options for the centre forward position, which is hardly a perfect scenario.

And while that is a natural position for the former Montpellier star, his English teammate hasn’t had a lot of opportunities to play through the middle despite the fact that he now prefers centre forward role to playing on the wing.

Arsene Wenger’s stubbornness has cost Arsenal 1

Posted on September 02, 2015 by David Nugent
