It is not an impossible to understand nuclear formula that why Arsenal choked in the Premier League after ruling the table for over 120 days. If your key players get injured you’re bound to face problems like Mourinho had to park a bus in the Champions’ League semifinal’s away leg because he didn’t have the likes of Matic or Hazard.
But a club like Arsenal believes in its own instilled philosophy and even when the likes of Ramsey, Walcott, Podolski, Wilshere and Chamberlain were out, Wenger fielded his troops only with the winning mindset. But if injuries have played their part in Arsenal’s downfall so does the club is responsible for the injuries.
According to Stewart Robson who has revealed that in a discussion with one of the members of the club’s medical staff, he discovered that Arsene Wenger’s rigorous methods in training have strained his players.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain,Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski, and Yaya Sanogo have all been victims of a long-term injury at some point this season while Abou Diaby is yet to play his first match of the campaign with just three games left on the schedule.
He said, “I met one of the members of Arsenal’s sports science department and he said he told Arsene Wenger on many occasions that ‘you are working the players too hard’ and Wenger took no notice.” Robson told ESPN FC. In fact, the rest of the coaching staff told him to be careful what he says because Wenger could get him out of the club”
