Arsenal's ridiculous list of injuries will wreck their season if it doesn't improve

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger showed signs of frustration after his side's 2-2 draw against Liverpool.

Make no mistake, the biggest problem Arsenal have right now is the injury crisis. Maybe crisis is the wrong word; it makes it sound like a short-term issue.

The injury situation. The injury saga. The injury chronicle. Whatever name you want to use, it's an ongoing problem that is having a negative impact on the team's performances and results.

For Sunday's 2-2 draw at Liverpool, the Gunners were without midfielders Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Tomas Rosicky. So manager...

Player Ratings: Sanchez's off-day as Arsenal let lead slip at Liverpool

Liverpool's Martin Skrtel rose highest to head home in injury time as Brendan Rodgers' men drew with Arsenal.

Arsenal were lucky to leave Anfield with a 2-2 draw on Sunday. Their first-half performance was horrific, and the Gunners simply couldn't live with Liverpool's fluid passing game. When Philippe Coutinho gave Brendan Rodgers' side the lead on the stroke of halftime, it seemed there would be one winner.

However, goals on either side of the break from Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud put Arsenal in an unlikely leading position. When Liverpool went down to 10 men after the dismissal of Fabio Borini,...

Liverpool, Arsenal frailties all too familiar in sloppy draw

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down all the drama at Anfield, which culminated with Martin Skrtel's stoppage-time equaliser that earned Liverpool a draw against Arsenal.

LIVERPOOL, England -- The significance of the injury time referee Michael Oliver was adding would become apparent later, but as Martin Skrtel had his head bandaged, the travelling Arsenal fans turned their attention to another of the Liverpool defence.

They addressed Kolo Toure, a stalwart of Arsene Wenger's most famous team. "You are Invincible," they chorused. Indeed Toure was, as part of an Arsenal side that completed the 2003-04 season without a league loss.

A decade on, both Toure's current...

Three Points: Martin Skrtel the hero as Liverpool earn a late draw vs. Arsenal

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down all the drama at Anfield, which culminated with Martin Skrtel's stoppage-time equaliser that earned Liverpool a draw against Arsenal.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Martin Skrtel's header deep in injury time earned Liverpool a deserved point against Arsenal. Here are three quick observations on Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Arsenal in Sunday's late Premier League clash ...

1. Skrtel saves the Reds

Highlights in Liverpool's season have been few and far between, and so the Slovakian defender's 97th-minute header qualified as one. It only rescued a point in a fixture that they had won 5-1 last season, but after trailing and being reduced...

For different reasons, Liverpool and Arsenal aren't meeting expectations

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth gives his betting odds for Arsenal and Liverpool, where he explains the best option would be to side with the Gunners.
Raheem Sterling, left, is managing the Prem pressure fairly well, Alexis Sanchez is thriving. Both players' teams, though, are not living up to expectations.

While Arsene Wenger was at least occasionally joking in his Friday news conference, Brendan Rodgers seemed genuinely abrasive. Gone was the charm so often associated with the Liverpool manager, so too the long descriptive lines about his team's style of play.

Rodgers was abrupt, to the point and occasionally on the attack. He was also defensive of some of his players, particularly Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli.

In other words, Rodgers was everything off the pitch that his team need to...
