Will a time ever come when Arsenal won’t have an injury crisis? It almost seems to be such a normal occurrence every season. However, which player would you pick as the biggest miss of the season?
Ozil picked up an injury just when his presence was really starting to be felt. He was starting to settle in Arsenal. Cazorla has being given the creative responsibility during Ozil’s absence and he has done a good job but every Arsenal fan is looking forward to Ozil’s return.
Probably the biggest loss of the season. Without him, Mertesacker has struggled to form an understanding with the numerous players who have partnered with him in central defence. Arsenal’s defence has looked really shaky without Koscielny’s tenacity. The game against Stoke City pretty much summed up his importance to the team.

- Recently departed Arsenal star reveals he’s living his ‘dream’ at new club
- Mesut Ozil remains defiant over future but slams Arsenal for lack of loyalty
Known for his tireless running and ability to hasten a game. Arsenal’s attack has looked slow and laboured without his penetrative running and defence splitting passes.
His direct running, blistering speed and good crosses have been missed. Thankfully, he is back and ready to wreak havoc on opposition defenses once again. Wenger says he has not lost any of his speed.
His aerial prowess, ability to hold up the ball and bring midfielders in to play, goals, and basically physical presence up front have been sorely missed. If he had being in the team from the beginning of the season, I am sure Arsenal would have been in the title race.
Ramsey had just rediscovered his goal scoring touch and also scored what is arguably the goal of the season in the Champions League. His goals have really been missed. Who knows… he might have gotten a couple against Liverpool.
Every time Wilshere starts to make his impression felt on the team, it is cruelly cut by another injury. Hopefully he will come back stronger than ever and start living up to his potential.
Arsene Wenger has been forced to call upon youngsters Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin in his absence which is good for them but Arsenal has missed an experienced head in his position. It is good to see him back and looking as fit as ever.
So which of these players has Arsenal not been able to cope without this season in your opinion?
