Arsenal have suffered a huge injury set back after Arsene Wenger revealed Santi Cazorla is suffering from Achilles problems as he tries to recover from his knee injury.

The little Spaniard has been extremely notable in his absence since he hurt his knee in November, it was hoped he would return soon to try and rekindle some of that creative flair that we have so sorely miss recently.

Wenger put paid to that however by revealing Santi is not doing too well.

‘Santi is not doing too well, he has some Achilles problems that hold him back. His knee is doing well but his Achilles has inflamed a little bit and we have to put him off impact.”

‘We have to see now how he responds. He had always a little tendonitis on his Achilles and we have to see how he responds to that.’

The Gunners have failed to win almost half of their games in all competition since Santi got injured in November. I think that speaks volumes about the value of the little man to our squad.
