Arsenal: Zelalem gets injured

I cry out in frustration at the news. Zelalem tweeted that he’ll be injured for 6-8 weeks.

“Out for 6-8 weeks, will try to use that to my benefit and get stronger #Positives”

That’s really annoying because I was hoping to see him playing in the Red and White in the coming weeks. He won’t be able to play in the Capital One Cup on 28 September against West Brom and unlikely that he’ll start (assuming we beat the Bagggies) in the 4th round tie at the end of October.

Also, with fixtures against out of form teams like Sunderland, Norwich, Swansea and Crystal Palace amongst an intense schedule, he might have been allowed a few substitute appearances.

I don’t want to hype this guy up too much, but it looks like he has that something special. Hopefully, he’ll get back to full fitness as soon as possible.
