We are about 72hours away from the game against Manchester United and it is certain that we will be without our midfield pivot Santi Cazorla who has provided a negative injury update.
Santi missed the most part of Arsenal’s season due to an Achilles problem and he had a recurrence in our 6-0 victory in the Champions League against Ludogrets. He was involved in training briefly but had a setback and has since been on the sidelines.
The 31 year old midfield schemer spoke to Cadena Cope and revealed that he is uncertain of his return date.
“I still don’t know the exact time,” said the 31-year-old.
“I am trying to return as soon as possible to be with the team again, but I cannot say if it will be soon, or if I still have a few weeks left.
“I do not know, but hopefully it will be as soon as possible.”
Arsenal will assess forward Alexis Sanchez on his return from international duty, but are hopeful the Chile international will be fit for Sunday’s crucial Old Trafford game.
