The remarkable stat, discovered by @GoonerStat, highlights just how injury prone Arsenal's squad has been in recent years.

With the likes of Abou Diaby, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott all suffering injuries that have kept them out for months on end, it's no wonder that Arsene Wenger has been unable to name his preferred XI for so long.

Even this season, Mathieu Debuchy and Laurent Koscielny have endured lengthy setbacks, making Wenger's job of guiding Arsenal to yet another top four spot even harder.
