Wenger Ready To Accept Blame For Alexis Injury, Rejects Stones Link

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is oblivious of the return date for both Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla.

Both players got off injured in Arsenal's 1-1 draw away to Norwich, joining the team's long list of injured players.


He made this known at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

"I don't know when they (Cazorla and Sanchez) come back.

"Sanchez is a hamstring, but he's usually a quick one. Cazorla we wait to see the specialist. Injuries, a debate that I leave to specialists. We compare our injuries across Europe and I don't think we have more injuries than anyone else.
"Sanchez had four weeks holiday, he was rested in some games. We had five days between Dinamo and Norwich.

"No one said he could display his hamstring or back when he was shoved in the cameras (by Ryan Bennett).

"If you want to blame me with the injuries, I have no problem with it."

When asked about making signings in January, especially making a move for John Stones, Wenger said: "I tell you exactly the same, we are in December and focus on tomorrow's game.

"We are not after John Stones. We are focused on tomorrow's game."

He also stated that Arsenal are very much in the title race.

"If you look across the league every game is difficult for everybody. It is down to consistency. I believe we are in there and it's how well we respond. I am convinced we will respond very well."
