Arsenal managed a solid 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund but it came at the expense of Mikel Arteta and Yaya Sanogo.
Both have only recently returned from their recent respective injury troubles but look set for another spell on the sidelines after pulling up injured tonight against Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Arteta’s calf problem sounds particularly bad with Wenger revealing it ‘looks quite serious’. A massive blow after an assured performance this evening.
The Arsenal boss told reporters:
The injury situation is an issue. Arteta’s looks quite serious and we lost Sanogo too.
Wenger also confirmed that Jack Wilshere will see a specialist tomorrow to determine whether he requires surgery or not on his damaged ankle from the weekend’s loss to Manchester United. Fingers crossed on that one.
More news to follow tomorrow. Have we set a new record for most injuries in a single season? Haven’t even made it to Christmas yet..
