The last thing Arsenal needed was more injuries to their squad. But lady luck was not on Arsenal's side as both Bacary Sagna and Wojciech Szczesny picked up injuries in the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane yesterday.

Sagna, a defender, is confirmed to have a fractured fibula, which will rule him out for three months. Szczesny, a goalkeeper, has pulled out of Poland's two friendlies during this international break because of a bad back.

With so many players on the sideline, Arsenal have yet to have a fully strengthened squad, which has plagued them in their title chances in the Premier League this season.

Sagna and Szczesny both join the likes of Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby, Thomas Vermaelen, Johan Djourou and Laurent Koscielny on Arsenal's injury report.

Diaby and Koscielny are likely to return to the squad after the international break, while Vermaelen could return to the squad by the end of October.

Arsene Wenger must buy more players in the January transfer window if Arsenal want to qualify for Champions League next year. Arsenal are in total "crisis" mode, and hopefully Wenger can get his men back on form and out of this mess in a hurry.
