How can the Arsenal manager make this season into a success?
As has happened so many times in the past, Arsenal’s season is reaching breaking point as the club approaches Christmas. Injuries are mounting, form is failing and the pressure is rising.
By the time the Gunners have their traditional spring surge, it could be too late for them in many competitions. The time for Arsene Wenger to act is now if he is to make this a successful season, but what can he do to turn things around?
5) Get players fit
The introduction of Arsenal’s much hyped new medical staff seems to have done nothing to help with their injury problems. Key players like Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny have all missed significant game-time, putting pressure on an already over-stretched squad. While Wenger might claim that the injuries are just coincidence, the stats say otherwise.
