Looks like our worst fears from yesterday’s unsubstantiated rumor-fest have now been substantiated. In Arsene Wenger’s pre-All Star Game press conference, Wenger said that Mertesacker will be “out a few months” with an unspecified knee injury.

This is not great; it means basically that Calum Chambers is the only fit CB. Rob will be Holding down the fort for the next couple games, probably, and I will never get tired of making Rob Holding puns because that’s what you get when your name is an active verb.
