Our shambolic display against Manchester United at Old Trafford pointed to the fact that Santi Cazorla is our midfield pivot and he has been determining our play from the middle of the pack.
The Star midfielder has traveled back to his country Spain to see a specialist Dr Ramon Cugat, in a bid to return on time from an Achilles problem.
Barcelona have a history of signing the Gunners’ stars, but luckily for fans the midfielder is being sent to Catalonia to try and find a cure for an ongoing Achilles problem.
Cazorla has been on the treatment table for up to a month but this move might finally end this niggling injury.
Guardiola was impressed by how the doctor was able to get players back in action quickly, and many Spanish players now prefer to use him – according to the Sunday Mirror.
Manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful of having the midfielder back in action for the busy Christmas period, and is sending him to Cugat after the player felt a problem when he attempted to step up the intensity of his training.
Cazorla has two goals and two assists in eight Premier League games this season, and the north Londoners looked to be suffering without him when they faced Manchester United on Saturday.
With Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny in central midfield, Arsenal were unable to create as many chances as they are usually able to.
