Wenger unveils new Arsenal signing

Mesut Ozil became the latest Arsenal star to pick up an injury this season as the Gunners’ woes – and casualty list – continue to grow.

Arsene Wenger has previously admitted being concerned by his side’s bad injury luck, and had appointed a new fitness guru, Shad Forsythe, in the summer, and will surely be keeping his fit players wrapped in cotton wool from now on.

Arsenal have also been given a scare by the news that Laurent Koscielny has withdrawn from the France squad, with the centre-back continuing to nurse a long-standing Achilles problem.

Arsene Wenger is already without Theo Walcott, who sustained a pelvic injury while on international duty with England, meaning the Frenchman must prepare for the prospect of facing a crucial Premier League run-in without key first-team stars.

The Gunners continue to trail fourth-placed Tottenham by four points, and their side is starting to resemble the walking wounded instead of the slick set-up needed to earn Champions League qualification...
