How Arsenal’s XI will look after recent injury crisis.Arsenal are already facing a real crisis in midfield after losing Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere to injury after this weekend’s game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal’s strength in depth will be really tested now, as the trio join the likes of Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud as among the major absentees from this current squad.
It certainly gives Arsene Wenger some thinking to do in the middle of the park, with few options remaining to him now as he faces a month or more without Ramsey, as well as losing Arteta and Wilshere for at least the next couple of games.
Here’s the only way Arsenal can think about lining up now, in what could make worrying reading for Gunners fans:

Although Wenger may be tempted to move Calum Chambers from defence into midfield, the former Southampton man will surely continue at right-back to fill in for Mathieu Debuchy, with Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin not quite looking ready for this level after being thrown in at the deep end against Borussia Dortmund recently.
