Arsenal in problems in front of "Crazy February"
Towards the end of December, Arsenal remained without service Aaron Ramsey who earned injury against West Ham, and although expecting his return last night in the match with Southampton, that did not happen
Ramsey still not recovered from the injury he sustained at the end of December in a match against West Ham. His return to the field is expected in four to six weeks, which shocked Arsenal fans, who were expecting him soon in the composition of his team.
This information was confirmed for the British media and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, given that the earlier season ended badly injured Theo Walcott, Arsenal found themself in big trouble, and are very weakened in the coming matches.
In previous years Arsenal in February lost the race for the title of England, and so will likely be this season. On the list of injured players besides Ramsey and Walcott are:
- Jack Wilshire - Ankle / Foot Injury
- Yaya Sanogo - Back Injury
- Vassiriki (Abu) Diaby - ACL Knee Injury
At the game played tonight against Southampton, Flamini earned a red card, so the Arsenal roster is even shorter.
With good reason Arsenal fans can call the next month, "Crazy February" because game schedule, as Wenger himself said is "not fair".
The schedule is as follows:
8th Feb Liverpool vs Arsenal
12th Feb Arsenal vs. Manchester United
15th Feb Arsenal vs Liverpool (FA Cup)
19th Feb Arsenal vs Bayern Munich
