Cazorla eyeing West Brom return. Theo op success

Santi Cazorla looks set to miss Arsenal’s Champions League clash at home to Napoli next Tuesday but says he hopes to be back in time for the trip to West Bromwich Albion on 6 October.

The Spaniard has been sidelined with an ankle problem after suffering an injury in training 12 days ago but is thought to be out of a protective boot.

Speaking to supporters as part of the Arsenal Twitter Takeover this morning, Santi provided a short update on his fitness stating:

“I will be fit maybe in one week, I hope I can play at West Brom.”

The news on Theo Walcott is also positive after Arsene Wenger revealed last night that the England man was on his way back from Germany after a successful operation on his stomach problem.

“Walcott had surgery and it went very well. He’s coming back (from Germany) Thursday so it’s what we expected there were no complications.”

Ahead of last night’s Capital One Cup win at the Hawthorns, the boss had also spoken of the other injured parties.

“Rosicky is the first back [of the injured players], but not in time for this week. Next week we will start to speak about that. He could come back in the squad for Sunday or Monday.”

On the likes of Podolski, Chamberlain and Diaby he added: “They are doing well but they are nowhere near ready. The next one back [of those three] might be Lukas. Alex will be one and a half months more.”

Oh Santi cazorla!


Bar The Ox (not considering Diaby since he’s really out for a long time..), we’ll have everyone else back post the international break. Hope this interlull keeps all our players safe. The most important period of the season is post the interlull – Dortmund (H & A), Chelsea in League Cup, Liverpool and United in the PL. Need the strongest squad to come out with flying colours come mid-November.

Ithink the injuries will keep our players away from the interlull, correct?

i think so but i am not sure…. last time diaby came back from injury, he had played just a couple of games and he was straightaway called on international duty….
WBA game is on 6th of october and if cazorla playes in that game, then there is the possibility that he is straightaway called for the international games, so fingers crossed…


Interlull will have fit players playing for their countries.

When will Podolski return?


after he finishes frolicking in his liederhosen, obviously

I love you Santi.


Damn it , looks like I’ve to wait longer to see Santi and Ozil plays together. But Rosicky coming back for Napoli is a good news. Hope the lads continue their fine form during this even with all the injuries problem.


Santi could live in a protective boot – he is 63% ankles as it is.

get better you fantastic little genius…

I think I’d like to see Jack Wilshere play every match in protective boots! I’d feel a lot happier…


Cannot wait to see Cazorla and Ozil spoil Giroud and Theo with their beautiful throughballs in the final third. Cannot.

Have to.


The superlatives to define just how much I love santi Cazorla are not yet in the dictionary for me…..


29oct – Chelsea
2nov – Liverpool
6nov- Dortmund
9nov – ManUtd



Games like these that makes watching football the greatest thing in the world. Especially when it’s The Arsenal!


*starts crying*


Tears of joy?


wish u quick recovery…al arsenal player nd fans hav mis u…


Be very exciting to see Santi and Özil on the same pitch, we are badly in need of options for the two attacking wide roles.

Defenders will have a nightmare trying to stop them interchanging passes and positions down the left!


I have been missed you Santi.

I can’t wait to see that Santi and Ozil play together.

Maybe, they will be a fantastic duo.

Santi Clauzorla is coming to town. What a wicked Christmas present that is for all of us. And it’s still September!


I would love it if he is the one to curl home the free-kick that wins the Champione League for us.

No more than one Santi Cazorla fellas!


Lets just pray, infact pray hard, that our HFB stays fit all his life.


Santi! Santi!! Santi!!! Santi!!!!

Naija Gunner

He didn’t even give any special update on Diaby! Hmmmm….


Well, at least he’ll be rested as it was much needed for him.

Jakob A

Is there an exact date where Podolski return?

“I speak with the coach and tell him I can play wherever you want”
