Teams and injuries: how Arsenal will line up tonight and when the injured will return

By Bulldog Drummond

As so the final episode in our little series about Arsenal v CSKA Moscow.  Here is the injury top ten, and yes shock horror we have gone up the table to 7th according to Physioroom.

Pos Club Total men gone Last man down What he done
1 West Ham United 8 A Cresswell Knee Injury
2 Burnley 7 G N’Koudou Tight Hamstring
3 Crystal Palace 7 C Benteke Groin Injury
4 Swansea City 7 S Clucas Knock
5 Watford 6 G Deulofeu Fractured Foot
6 West Bromwich Albion 6 H Robson-Kanu Concussion
7 Arsenal 5 G Xhaka Illness
8 Everton 5 M Holgate Ankle Injury
9 Huddersfield Town 4 J Hogg Knock
10 Bournemouth 4 T Mings Fitness

As it shows, Xhaka has been added to the list.

And the players in detail

The man What happened When he’s back Today?
G Xhaka Illness April 15, 2018 Slight Doubt
H Mkhitaryan MCL Knee Ligament Injury May 23, 2018 No
D Ospina Ankle Injury April 29, 2018 No
A Maitland-Niles Muscular Injury April 15, 2018 Major Doubt
S Cazorla Plantaris Injury No Return Date No

What this shows is that although Xhaka and Maitland-Niles will probably be back after the weekend, Mkhitaryan is out for the season, which really is a shame and a half.

The commentary from the more scurrilous blogs is that they wish Mustafi was not playing.    The word seems to be that Ramsey has travelled and is expected to play.   And while we are doing the round up, it is interesting to hear that Giroud has scored once for Chelsea in seven games.   That issue has been raised by the Metro.

And apparently Arsenal supporters at the match have been warned about going out looking for adventures.

So what have we got for a team?

Cech

Bellerín, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal;

Ramsey, Elneny;

Özil, Wilshere, Welbeck;

Lacazette

In a lineup like this one might imagine Wilshere dropping back into a middle three of Ramsey, Wilshere, Elney, with Ramsey given the chance to venture further forward when the situation allows.

    COYG!

  • Not a bad prediction from Untold then

  • Gord

    Not bad at all.

    Some surprises in the CSKA lineup.

    COYG!

  • Menace

    No wonder Ozil was smiling as he clappeed hands with the officials – they are his country men.

  • Gord

    UEFA is reporting that there are about 500 visiting supporters at the stadium. TASS was expecting about 100, possibly that number is visiting from England.

    Let’s hope their noisy.

    COYG!

  • Menace

    Jack gets a wake up call from Mustafi – a headed ball in the face. Hope it makes him pass quicker.

  • Gord

    I hope Wilshere is okay.

    It’s 1-1 in Marseille.

    > Let’s hope they’re noisy. ** Oops!

    COYG!

  • Gord

    Horsefeaters!

    Come on Arsenal, let’s get that goal back!

    COYG!

  • Gord

    What happened to Ramsey?

    COYG!

  • Menace

    Ramsey was stepped on his calf. Jack is being stupid as usual with holding on to the ball for too long and attracting kicks to his ankles.

  • Menace

    The officials do not seem to be bothered by the trailing boots that step on Arsenal players. This must be the third or fourth late step after the ball has gone. They don’t look deliberate but there is an obvious technique.

    Horsefeathers!

    Gunners, we need at least one goal now.

    COYG!

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    If we don’t wake ourselves up we are going out of this competition. Our passing is awful and we are being bullied out of possession. Cech not having his best game although that was a decent save from the free kick.

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    Good header from Elneny but well offside. Better though

  • Menace

    We need Kola on the left to support Nacho.

  • Menace

    Jack is a liability.

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    Jack is having a nightmare. So inconsistent when he’s actually fit!
    COYG!

  • Menace

    Good move Wenger!!

  • Menace

    ElNenny in the middle & Chambers at the back.

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    Never thought I’d see the day when I’d be happy to see Jack replaced with Chambers!

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    We’ve no leaders on the pitch. Being totally overrun and we have nothing in response.
    COYG FFS!

  • ARSENAL 13

    Yyyeeeeaaahhhhh come on

    Kane scores….

  • 5th Gen Gooner

  • Menace

  • Gord

    How to go Danny! Nice assist Mo.

    COYG!

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    That’s much better! Well done Danny

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    Laca subbed but to be honest he’s had no service and been a luxury all night.
    COYG!!!!!!

  • Gord

    Who is this Kane person? 🙂

    COYG!

  • Sheworeayellowribbon

    Welbzz

    Won’t be needing to cancel my flights to Lyon now.

    Just need Lisbon to score. Other results in our favour I think.

  • Sheworeayellowribbon

    Gord. Seemingly Welbecks shot took a deflection off Kane’s elbow and will be credited to him as a Premier League goal.

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    Hopefully the nerves have been settled now. The team have been shaky all night.

  • Menace

    Mustafi – your chance to head in a goal

  • Menace

    Rambo taken over from Jack to gift the ball!!

  • Menace

    Iwobi lost his vision like the PGMOL!!!

  • Gord

    His elbow, eh? Okay. 🙂

    COYG!

  • ARSENAL 13

    Hahhahahaha…

    Kane scores again

  • Gord

    Mo teamwork, and Aaron scores! Go, Mo!

    COYG!

  • Menace

    Rambo in the witching hour & Savage starts to praise Arsenal – the two faced cnut!

  • Gord

    Is Kane going to be scoring in our game against Newcastle on the weekend?

    COYG!

  • 5th Gen Gooner

    Elneny – Our man of the match!

    Next round opponents don’t matter we will have to beat Athletics to win the competition

  • Gord

    So, it’s Marseille, us, Athletico and Salzburg?

  • Brickfields Gunners

    WOO HOO , HOO ! Good fight back , guys , keeping us unbeaten . Great assists by Elneny !

    WOO HOO , HOO ! Good fight back , guys , keeping us unbeaten . Great assists by Elneny !

  • John L

    Elneny was superb. Welbeck was brilliant. Everybody was good (most of the time). I had the misfortune to watch in a pub, without the volume turned down, so had to put up with Savage talking the usual sh….

  • Zedsaunt

    Well done the lads, brilliant! Resilience, holding out, then The Becks swooped. Mo man of the match. Mr Wenger saw what he has and now every game we can see the quality.

    Inch perfect assist for the Becks, pins two CSKA players to passing between themselves, sets up Rambo. As fast at the end as he was at the beginning. Mo the man.
