- Arsenal have been identified as the team who suffer the most injury in the Premier League
- Players like Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby missed a combined total of over 800 through injury
- Statistics show that since 2012 that Arsenal players have missed 10,825 days - over 28 years
Arsene Wenger can finally give Arsenal fans an excuse for the way they have underachieved in the last five years...blame it on the injuries.
This season, the Wenger Out brigade have gone up a whole new level after seeign their title challenge falter, exit the Champions League at the round of 16 stage once again and seeing the future of star duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez unsettled.
Statistics gathered shows Arsenal have succumbed to more injuries than any other Premier League club since the start of the 2011-12 season.
NAIJ.com understands that the Gunners have racked up 10,825 days - just over 28 years - worth of injuries.
To put that in perspective, the Gunners have seen players injured a full two years clear of any other team. Manchester United come up second with 9,600 days of players on the sidelines.
Players like Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby missed over 800 days apiece as they spent time on the physio's table.
Elsewhere, Merseyside giants Everton and Liverpool come in third and fourth in injury stakes, with 8,058 and 8,044 respectively.
Tottenham on 7,625, Stoke and Sunderland at around 7,000 days apiece come in at fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.
So maybe their inability to win the Premier League cannot be blamed on the manager or mediocre players but the number of time they spend on the sidelines.
