Arsene Wenger: Santi Cazorla injury worst I've seen

Arsenal's French coach, Arsene Wenger, described Santi Cazorla's ankle injury as "the worst" he has ever seen, but was hopeful that the Spanish worldwide could return to the pitch in January.

Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has described injured midfielder Santi Cazorla as the most skillful player at the club.

Arsene Wenger must reinstate Alexandre Lacazette to the Arsenal starting line-up for the north London derby, according to David Seaman.

"What started with a pain in the Achilles tendon was then worse and worse", revealed the Gunners coach.

The Spaniard is hopeful of finally returning to action in January following eight operations to fix the issue, and Iwobi believes that he will be a huge boost to the squad having selected him above the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette as the best player at the club.

"I saw him one month ago, he was here, and I told him to prepare as well as he can". He has competent medical people around him.

Talk of moves away for both players has been rife, with Manchester City keen on Sanchez and Manchester United ready to pounce for Ozil.

And speaking today, boss Wenger did little to entirely quash the prospect of Cazorla never playing again - while labelling his injury the most horrific he has seen, even worse than Aaron Ramsey's leg break.

I think Tottenham are a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that's what we want to show.

Cazorla has been posting regular updates on social media with him working out in the gym as he tries to complete his comeback. "I left him out of the squad, hoping he would be available in January". I never thought I'd have to quit - but the doctors told me: 'If you manage to get back to walking with your son in the garden you should settle for that.
