Tomas Rosicky (Arsenal)
The 34-year-old has been a bit part player in recent years at the Emirates, after frequent injuries have hampered his chances at regular first-team football. The Czech Republic international is likely to be out until 2016, after undergoing knee surgery. Only playing 79 matches in the last three seasons, Rosicky will be hoping to return quickly in order to get as many games under his belt before the end of his contract.
Expected return date: February 2016
Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)
A man who seems to have spent most of his career in the physio room, Wilshere’s injury blighted nightmare seems to be continuing. The England midfielder has been ruled out for a few more months after undergoing an operation on his left fibula. Still young at 23, he has time to make a lot of his career, but a consistent, injury free season is needed to pull him back from the brink.
Expected return date: January 2016
Max Gradel (Bournemouth)
Having scored 17 goals in Ligue 1 last season, Gradel’s introduction to the Premier League with new boys Bournemouth was a highly anticipated one. But when he went down clutching his knee against Leicester earlier in the season, Cherries fans feared the worst. The 27-year-old has suffered cruciate ligament damage and is expected to be out for a number of months. A huge blow to the newly promoted side, who bought the former Leeds United man for his pace and trickery.
Expected return date: April 2016
