Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla (knee) out at least three months

Wednesday December 2nd, 2015

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is out at least three months with a knee injury, reports The Guardian’s Marcus Christenson.

Cazorla, 30, sustained damage to the ligaments in his knee during the 46th minute of a 1–1 draw against Norwich on Sunday. He played with the injury for the rest of the match.

“He played the second half on one leg,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Sunday following the match.

Arsenal currently has 10 players on its roster with injuries, including Cazorla’s fellow midfielder Francis Coquelin, who was ruled out for three months due to a knee injury he sustained during a match against West Brom.
