Arsenal facing midweek injury crisis

After a horrendous opening to the Premier League season, Arsenal face an injury nightmare ahead of their crucial midweek Champions League tie against Fenerbahce.

The Gunners lost Kieran Gibbs after a first half clash of heads, and Arsene Wenger revealed after the game that other first team players were struggling to make the trip to Turkey.

“We have some problems to get players back for Wednesday night,” he said. “Gibbs has a deep cut, Sagna, Rosicky has a problem. Ramsey has a problem with a kick on his ankle.”

Bacary Sagna could have suffered a very serious injury after a horrible looking landing (GIF), while Ramsey missed Wales game this week because of the ankle.

We assume Rosicky has Rosickyed himself somehow, and with Gibbs, Sagna, Monreal and Vermaelen absent, Arsene Wenger may have to get creative to field a back four in Turkey.

It’s hard not to come back to the summer and the chances we had to make things better.

What a mess.
