The Arsenal title charge faltered at the Vitality Stadium following a disappointing 3-3 draw against Bournemouth and another injury to a key player.
The Gunners waved goodbye to Egypt midfielder Mo Elneny on Monday after he left to join his international teammates at the upcoming African Cup of Nations tournament. Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin had been poised to cover during his absence, but the latter now looks set for a spell on the side-lines after limping off with a suspected hamstring strain on Tuesday. Fortunately, Aaron Ramsey is back following his recent injury but Arsene Wenger’s squad is beginning to look a little stretched. Theo Walcott has missed the last three league games because of a "minor" calf strain while Mesut Ozil [illness] and Kieran Gibbs [knee] were added to the list over Christmas - Santi Cazorla may have to wait until late February before a return to action. If tests confirm the injury to Coquelin is serious, then Wenger may be tempted to dip into the transfer market during the January window. Jan 3 - 4:48 PM
