Arsenal news includes a look at the current situation in the treatment room at Arsenal

Arsenal’s injury record so far this season has been surprisingly good, considering recent campaigns, but the treatment room has begun to fill up in the past few weeks.

Long term absentee Santi Cazorla has been joined by several of his teammates – including the likes of Calum Chambers, Danny Welbeck and Shkodran Mustafi.

But what about goalkeeper David Ospina, who had to miss the midweek win against Norwich in the Carabao Cup. Could any of the current crop of injured players return to face Swansea this weekend?
