Wenger defends Arsenal's injury list, again

Posted by Ix Techau over 4 years ago · 3 replies

We have to consider every injury individually. Most of the injuries we've had are joint problems and accidental problems and there are post-World Cup traumatic injuries. The only muscular problems we have had consistently this year are Arteta and Ramsey. Ramsey is quite surprising because he's young and has good stamina and we haven't really found out why.

Let's not forget, we've played eight Champions League games since the start of the season and when your bodies are not really prepared and you go Wednesday night to Besiktas and Saturday to Sunderland, it's demanding. Is that the only explanation? I don't know but I cannot deny that we've had more injuries than planned.

- Arsene Wenger

This doesn't make much sense:

  • Almost a third of our injuries this season have been strains or soft-tissue damage. These can in most cases be prevented through training.

  • What are the post-World Cup traumatic injuries that results in us not being able to field our strongest XI?
