One of Arsene Wenger’s key men appears to be facing a frustrating spell on the sidelines with his return date still unclear.

Santi Cazorla has been out of action ever since he featured in the 6-0 victory over Ludogorets. For a full list of Premier League Injuries click here.

However, the Spaniard has been struggling to recover from an achilles injury similar to the problem which kept him out for much of last season.

And ahead of the clash with Manchester United, Cazorla has revealed there is a worrying uncertainty over when he will be playing again.

“I still don’t know the exact time,” said the 31-year-old.

“I am trying to return as soon as possible to be with the team again, but I cannot say if it will be soon, or if I still have a few weeks left. I do not know, but hopefully it will be as soon as possible.”

“[We need to] win every game, get as many points as possible and also be successful against the big teams, like we were against Chelsea.

“We have the quality to beat any team and that’s what we want to show this season.

“You can see that the big clubs at the top have quality, and that we have to win every game because of how tight it is at the top.

“Our goal has to be to look at ourselves. If we win the games, we’ll be at the top at the end.”
