Just when Arsenal thought that their injury problems are getting better, they have been delivered a fresh setback.
Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky, who made his first appearance of the season in the FA Cup win over Burnley, has been ruled for a month with an injury setback.
Daily Mail reports that the 35-year old midfielder suffered a thigh strain during his second half substitute appearance, and he is set to miss at least four weeks due to his injury.
He will undergo further tests to learn the extent of his injury. Manager Arsene Wenger is expected to provide an update on the extent of the injury in his pre-match conference for the home game against Southampton.
This is a second bad news in injury department for the Arsenal fans this week. Earlier it was reported that midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered another setback in his recovery from his injury and has been ruled out till mid-March.
At the moment, Arsenal are without Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky due to injuries.
For Rosicky, the latest injury setback could very well mean the curtains on his Arsenal career as he is in his last year of the contract and is not expected to stay at Emirates Stadium beyond the summer.
