Tomas Rosicky a doubt for Sunderland clash

Posted on September 11, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal’s industrious midfielder Tomas Rosicky could be another name on the Gunners’ injury list after limping out of his side’s World Cup qualifying match against Italy.

The Czech Republic international could be missing for a number of weeks with what looked to be a leg injury.

While Rosicky has started all three of his side’s Premier League games this season, he faces stiff competition from new arrival Mesut Ozil – who signed from La Liga runners-up Real Madrid.

Many feel he could be one to lose his place, as midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been in insatiable form for the London outfit this campaign.

Arsenal have suffered from a number of injuries early on this season, with Mikel Arteta, Thomas Vermaelen, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Yaya Sanogo, and Lukas Podolski the most notable whom are currently sidelined.

Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere both limped off in England’s recent World Cup qualifier against Ukraine, but there is no word on whether they will miss Arsenal’s next game against Sunderland on the weekend.

With the side running thin on replacements for Rosicky, manager Arsene Wenger is hoping the 32-year old will be back as swiftly as possible. Wenger’s decision not to greatly strengthen the side during the summer transfer window is going against him with the growing injury list at Arsenal.

  1. I think he is being phased out of the team slowly now anyway. Time for Ozil to shine.
