Arsenal’s win over Burnley in the FA Cup last night was good news for the Gunners who welcomed back Francis Coquelin and Tomas Rosicky from injuries, new signing Mohamed Elneny also made his Arsenal debut, and Alexis Sanchez started a game for the first time since November. But all is not good for Arsenal as Tomas Rosicky has been injured once again and he will be sidelined for another 6 weeks courtesy a damaged thigh muscle.

Rosicky returned to the Arsenal squad for the first time since May 2015 after a gap of almost 255 days and after playing just 20 minutes he is set to be side lined for another couple of months.

Tomas Rosicky came on in the 71st minute for Alex Iwobi to make his first Arsenal appearance of the season but it didn’t go too well for Rosicky who has damaged his thigh muscle and the Gunners will be conducting scans and tests to determine the exact extent of his injury.

 

Rosicky is out of contract in the summer and this injury may prove to well be the end of Rosicky’s Arsenal career.

Wenger is already without the services of key players Jack Wilshere , Santi Cazorla and Danny Welbeck and Rosicky’s injury is a big blow for Wenger who would have hoped to have the Czech’s services available as the Champions League games also begin in a few weeks.

Rosicky had played 45 minutes for the Arsenal under 21s last week and it would be wrong to accuse Wenger of rushing him into the team.
