Arsenal had started this season with a very viable squad that had many thinking that by this time in the season we would be sitting at the very top of the table or at least somewhere between the first three.
But that has not been the case as we have been struck with should i say “our injury curse” once again, although a little early in the season and have had to endure just three wins and a loss from nine games played so far, partly a result of the number of first team players plagued so far. Summing up a massive 5 draws equaling the likes of Hull City and Sunderland as the team’s with the highest number of draws played so far this season.
Arsenal have had to watch the likes of Mathiue Debuchy, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Laurent Koscielny, David Ospina, Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs miss games very early this season with many of the aforementioned players still missing due to extended spells on the treatment table.
But there seems to light emanating from the Emirates camp now with the early return of Giroud heavily talked about and now Debuchy being back, or at least closer to his return date than previously thought.
The Frenchman himself took to his official account on popular social media outlet Instagram to share with his fans a picture of himself in Arsenal’s gym/fitness centre. This would come as good news for us Arsenal fans as we have seriously felt the wrath of injuries so early this campaign, especially back in our defence.
Below is the picture. We wish Debuchy a speedy recovery and back on the pitch for us in no time.
