It’s obviously a big problem for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta, but with the break between now and the opening of the January transfer window, there is time to react.
The Gunners resume Premier League action against West Ham on December 26th, and face Newcastle, Sp*rs and Man Utd in January.
It feels like reinforcements will be required. Let’s see what happens, and let’s hope GJ can recovery quickly. A bit of Elneny DNA might be useful.
