Ospina was on the bench against Stoke so doesn't that mean he's fit?

Why is Carl Jenkinson on the list when he got the injury for West Ham?

He has returned to Arsenal for rehabilitation, so is currently an injured Arsenal player. However, I will exclude him from the injury count as soon as I get some time to code that logic, as he wasn't injured at Arsenal. He will still be counted towards days missed, but won't be counted as an injury sustained.

Tomas Rosicky is said to have suffered a thigh injury yesterday. Apparently going to be another 6 weeks now.

But if Jenkinson didn't suffer the injury with Arsenal, how is it fair to blemish this season's injury record with his rehabilitation which, whilst being at the club, was not caused by it?

Two ways of looking at it really:

  1. Although the injury wasn't caused at Arsenal, he is now at Arsenal and could play for us if he recovered tomorrow. Therefore his days lost should count towards the total days lost. His injury shouldn't count towards the injury count though.

  2. Since he was injured elsewhere and our Injury Room should reflect what happens at Arsenal specifically, he should be completely omitted from all injury numbers until he's back.

I'm not actually sure which one I lean towards being the more reasonable.

Ok so I've now changed this. Any player injured on loan is completely omitted from the statistics (although still listed as currently injured of course). Makes sense, cheers for the feedback.

Bellerins 2 weeks out should be orange, not green
