Arteta bemoans Gunners injuries

Published Add your comment

Midfielder Mikel Arteta would love to see what a fully-fit Arsenal squad could achieve.

While captain Robin van Persie has enjoyed a largely injury-free campaign to score 33 goals, manager Arsene Wenger has not been able to call upon England midfielder Jack Wilshere all season because of a niggling ankle problem, while several other key men, including defenders Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna, have all spent a frustrating time in the London Colney treatment room.

Arteta, who has started 25 Premier League games, feels with everyone firing on all cylinders, Arsenal would be more than a match for any side, saying in Sport Magazine: "We have been hit with important, long-term injuries the whole season that really, really affect the team."
