Ahead of a crucial run of fixtures, which could be pivotal in the Gunners' quest for a top-four finish, Wenger will have to cope without several important players.

Mesut Ozil became the latest key man to be confined to the treatment room after picking up a hamstring injury in Arsenal's Champions League draw with Bayern Munich on Tuesday, joining Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey on the sidelines.

And the French manager revealed he will be examining what is causing such a lengthy injury list.

"I am concerned that this happens," Wenger said, quoted in The Guardian.

"If you look at our overall injury list going into such a decisive part of the season, we have no Wilshere, Ozil, Ramsey and we went to Bayern without Gibbs and Monreal.

"It's very difficult to find an obvious reason why."

Wenger is especially concerned with Ramsey's injury problems, as the Welsh midfielder looked set to return to the squad for Sunday's north London derby with Tottenham, but will not make it.

"That's our worry at the moment, Ramsey is taking longer than expected," Wenger added.

"We have to be very cautious with him.

"When will he be back? I believe it's two more weeks now."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
