Every football season, at least a few teams in most football leagues around the world are derailed because of a major injury. It's inevitable.
Unless you're Manchester City and can afford to buy quality depth in nearly every position, your club is always susceptible to underperforming due to injuries.
Arsenal fans know this too well, as Jack Wilshere's absence hurt them last season, and Robin van Persie's injury troubles have hurt the team in seasons gone by. Liverpool fans too have experienced this, with Steven Gerrard's injury problems hurting the team's success recently.
Tottenham too suffered last season from Ledley King's persistent injury problems and Michael Dawson's extended injury breaks. Even Manchester United had their defence significantly weakened by Nemanja Vidic's season-long injury last season.
The list goes on and on.
Today, we're going to take a look at all 20 EPL teams and name an injury that could derail each team's season. The player picked won't necessarily be the most injury-prone or most talented player on the team; in most cases, we'll try to mention players who fall under both categories.
However, the player could also be a player who cannot easily be replaced by other players at his respective club.
