Arsenal struggled against newly promoted Middlesbrough in the Premier League yesterday – the most obvious of our weaknesses yesterday was the lack of cohesion in the midfield yesterday as we couldn’t penetrate our opponents attack.
Speaking after the match, Arsene Wenger delivered the we all do not want to hear about Santi Cazorla. Wenger claims not to know how the diminutive Spaniard is doing, which is far from a positive news.
Wenger on injuries: "Cazorla I don’t really know and Giroud could be in the squad on Tuesday night."

Cazorla picked up a knock in our Champions League win over Ludogret and trained last Friday. However, he was left out of Boro’s game and our midfield was devoid of creativity as Elneny struggled to combine well with Coquelin.
Hopefully he’s okay; our 0-0 draw against Boro proved how huge he is for us considering he’s such a little guy.
