Wenger: Don’t worry about Henrikh Mkhitaryan

13

Arsene Wenger says that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in good hands following his knee injury, and that he expects the midfielder to return before the end of the season.

It was feared that he could be sidelined for the rest of the campaign after suffering damage to his medial ligament, but after the 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow that secured Arsenal a Europa League semi-final, the Frenchman appeared upbeat about the former Borussia Dortmund man.

Asked for an update on his fitness, he said, “He has a medial ligament strain. He should be out for two more weeks so don’t be too worried.

“We have good medical staff and he is very serious in his rehab.”

Two further weeks on the sidelines means the Armenia international will miss matches against Newcastle United and West Ham United and the first-leg of our Europa League semi-final.

In the meantime, we’ve got Welbeck…

You always worry when Wenger says “don’t worry”.

Thank Bergkamp Welbeck’s been looking good lately, but even so we’re going to miss Mkhi. Don’t really have a dribbler like him to play on the wings.

Nobody’s worried about Mikhi Arsene, the only worry here is you lying about him being out for 2 weeks.

Main worry for Arsenal is the negativity you get from certain sections of commentators on the blogs , media and from those supporters who buy the media narratives even being peddled . Winning in such circumstances is harder for the players who are likely to be influenced by negativity around them .

No negativity and influence by media, you’re just naive. So he’s never lied about players being out for a short period of time?

Like a few years ago when Welbeck was injured, the summer transfer window closed and the next morning they announced Welbeck was out for 6 months.

That is just one example. Look at Cazorla. Ha ! Media influence and negativity. You watch too much TV. go out more.

Yeah but what do you gain from being ‘right’. Because it’s clearly not peace of mind.

Shame we don’t have him against athletico. Our bench options are slim. We are about 1 injury away from problems in europa
