Arsenal Fans Go Mental On Twitter After Horrible Coquelin News Breaks

Twitter is currently awash with rumours that Arsenal’s Francis Coquelin will be out injured for three months…

Arsenal are currently in the midst of yet another injury crisis and yesterday, after a shocking loss away at West Brom, the Gunners had even more casualties.

Arsene Wenger was forced to replace Francis Coquelin after just 14 minutes of play and after the 90 minutes were up, the Arsenal manager confirmed that the injury looked serious.

Coquelin has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers since breaking into the first team last season and with a huge lack of options in defensive midfield, a long layoff for the Frenchman could mean that the Gunners will be left dreadfully short.

The general consensus is that Mikel Arteta is now not good enough to dominate that position for a side that aspires to the Premier League title and the loss of Coquelin may just mean that Wenger will be forced to loosen his infamously tight purse strings in January.

Prior to yesterday’s clash with West Brom, Arsenal were already missing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Danny Welbeck (knee), Tomas Rosicky (knee), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Theo Walcott (calf) and Jack Wilshere (ankle).

The loss at the Hawthorns also saw midfield duo Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta sustaining injuries, with the former now reportedly set for a 3 month recovery period.

Arsenal fans have not reacted very well to the news and quite a few have already gone into rage mode on Twitter. Check out some of the top tweets below.
