For the longest of times, Arsenal was and probably still is considered to be the club in the Premier League where most players consistently struggle with injuries. In every single season of the past few years, Arsene Wenger has had to work out an entire season where most or at least some of his key players are unable to play due to injuries.
Manchester United seems to be going through an injury curse of their own after the international break ended and a number of players in the team of Louis van Gaal have picked up injuries and might not be able to play in the upcoming Premier League match of Manchester United which is scheduled to be played against Arsenal on November 22 at the Emirates Stadium.
From the goalkeeping position of the squad of Louis van Gaal to the attackers of the team, injuries have started to spread around just about every spot in the squad.
David de Gea dislocated his finger during a training session with Spain; Marcos Rojo dislocated his shoulder during Manchester United’s match against Manchester City a few days ago. Daley Blind suffered a knee ligament injury when playing for Netherlands, the midfielder Jesse Lingard is not expected to be back in action until December meanwhile Michael Carrick also sustained an injury after representing his country.
Ashley Young is recovering from a groin injury and the attacking duo of RadamelFalcao and Wayne Rooney have been struggling with injuries and physical problems of their own recently.
All of those players mentioned previously have been struggling with injuries but some of those are expected to be back in action for Manchester United’s match against Arsenal, however, not all of them will be able to recover in time for the league match.
Louis van Gaal would have wanted to have all of his key players fully recovered and prepared to play without any physical problems of any kind but unfortunately for the Dutchman, his squad has recently been hit with a series of injuries and this is terrible news for a coach that is eager to gain the confidence of the fans of Manchester United and the authorities of the club as Van Gaal still has not managed to completely revive the Premier League club from their abysmal past few months of abysmal results.
