Another massive injury blow for Arsenal ahead of Cardiff City clash

Arsenal have been handed another major injury blow after Sokratis Papastathopoulos was ruled out of action for 4 weeks with a niggling ankle problem.

Sokratis was in action for Arsenal against Manchester United but he was also banjaxed with injury like Laurent Koscielny.

Although Emery allayed fears that the injury of the Greek defender was too serious, it now appears that we will be without him for up to a month.

According to a report by the club, the player is not expected to return to full training until the end of February.

The player joins the growing and ending injury list of Arsenal.

Hector Bellerin recently ruptured his anterior cruciate Ligament and he is not expected to be back until after nine months.

Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck have been undergoing rehab but they will not be back this season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has returned to full training but he is still short of fitness.

Emery inherited a squad that is injury prone and it appears that the training method of the club is affecting the player. How else do you explain why these players are getting injured?
