Cazorla has been ever present alongside Francis Coquelin for the north London club this season, but it could be a while before fans get to see that partnership again.
Coquelin is out until well into the new year after sustaining a knee ligament injury and Wenger has confirmed his Spanish midfield partner could be sidelined for up to four months.
The former Malaga man played the full 90 minutes against Norwich despite picking up a knee injury and his French manager is fearing the worst for the 30-year-old.
As per the Telegraph, he said: "Sanchez is a hamstring [injury] but I don't know how long it will take. Cazorla [seeing a specialist] possibly out until March."
Once again we have the usual story of Arsenal's squad being blighted by injuries. It seems to be an annual occurrence, and this year has been among the worst.
Theo Walcott and Koscielny are in contention to play against Sunderland on Saturday. But they will be without Jack Wilshere, Thomas Rosicky, Sanchez, Danny Welbeck, Coquelin, Cazorla and Mikel Arteta.
Although, you get the feeling that Wenger could have lessened the impact of these losses by making some signings over the summer
