Big injury blow: Key Gunner now out of next two games vs PSG and Bournemouth
Arsenal are dealing with more injury worries heading into Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain.
Arsene Wenger’s side will welcome the French champions to the Emirates stadium this week, knowing victory is imperative if they are to finish top of their group.
However, the clash with PSG has come on the back of a relatively worrying couple of weeks at Arsenal which has seen them drop points in the Premier League and lose key defender Hector Bellerin to an ankle injury.
Another star troubled by fitness concerns is Santi Cazorla, who has been missing ever since he played a part in the 6-0 win over Ludogorets.
The Spaniard was expected to return to action by now but new rumours are claiming he will miss the rest of the month at least.
According to a report by the Standard, Cazorla is now certain to be ruled out of Arsenal’s next two games; the clash against PSG and the Premier League affair with Bournemouth on Saturday.
Thus, the 31-year-old has been sent out to see a specialist in Spain as he continues to struggle with an Achilles injury.
The absence of the former Malaga star means Arsene Wenger is likely to keep rotating his three main midfield options; Mohamed Elneny, Francis Coquelin and Granit Xhaka.
