Arsenal team news and current performance

Previously, Arsenal had 9 injured players in the team. After that, 2-3 players have started their game since past week. However, in the previous match, Coquelin got an injury and Arsenal paid for that. In the last match of Premier League, against West Brom, they lost with a score line of 2-1. In the last few matches, they are not performing as well as they used to be. However, the injury is a reason behind this.

The most surprising defeat was against Bayern Munich, which ended up with 5-1. The saddest news is Welbeck, Walcott, Chamberlain etc. will be keep unavailable in this important match. On the other hand, Wilshere is having a fracture in fibula, which makes him unavailable and their midfielder Ademi will not be available for next four years because of having a suspension. That means, Wenger must have to plan differently as all of their previous plans were total flop.

If you check the last few matches of Arsenal, you cannot find any plan B when they were one goal down or two goals down. This is where Wenger needs to pay his attention. Apart from those injuries, Arsenal is lacking of some confidence and the consecutive defeat and draws are the main reason behind this.
