Arsenal Star Could Miss Rest Of Season With Injury

It feels as though barely a fortnight goes by without Arsenal fans being greeted with the news that a player is either injured or their injury is worse than first feared and the new year doesn't seem to have brought the Gunners any better luck, either.

Santi Cazorla hasn't made an appearance for Arsenal since October due to an achilles tendon problem and now Arsene Wenger is admitting that the Spaniard's season may be over.

The initial prognosis was that the former Malaga midfielder would return in March, but now that is looking a little ambitious, according to the Gunners' boss, with Cazorla now requiring a further operation.

"Santi is far from starting to run again. He had a little procedure and we have a meeting with the medical people today to see what it really was.'Certainly he will not be available in the next six weeks, that is for sure.

"Will he play again this season? I hope so because once you start to go outside, you have to count six weeks' preparation.

"At the moment he is not at that level.'Let's hope he can come back in the next three or four weeks on the pitch."

While Arsenal haven't exactly struggled in Cazorla's absence, minus a couple of setbacks against Everton and Manchester City, the news will come as a bitter blow to fans as the club challenge for trophies on three fronts during the second half of the season, needing as many players available as possible.
