Debuchy injury sparks defense crisis at Arsenal

Arsenal right back, Mathieu Debuchy signed from Newcastle is likely to miss football action for a considerable time following the ankle injury sustained in the weekend clash against City.

It’s a worrying sign for Wenger as the injury leaves Arsenal with lack of depth. Following the commencement of Champions League football, the need to rotate the squad is paramount. With the water thin squad of Arsenal in defense, things are not looking pretty good.

To elaborate this situation further, other than Chambers, the Gunners do not have a cover for central defenders other than Per and Kolscieny. Mind you, Chambers will have to be deployed as a right following the injury to Debuchy. This means Hector Bellerin, a 16 year old with a single league cup appearance could feature for the first team.

Good luck Wenger, we have been here before.
