    Hey, nice site. Just wildly confused as to where you get these totals from. 98 injuries for Arsenal is massively high. Physioroom isn’t the best source, but still. These numbers seem out. Just wanted to pass along my opinion as someone who has looked at this and still looks at man games lost to injury.

      The numbers are compounded weekly, so Arsenal have averaged 8.17 injured players per week, over a 12 week period.

    Cheers for the reply.

    Interesting. I track injuries, I get injuries from 2 different previews (guardian and who scored) then check if any of those players actually played in the game. The fourth piece of info involves following the local beat writer for each PL team, a beat writer who usually knows the knows the reasons a players is absent: illness/dropped/rested/whatever.

    Using all this, and not forgetting I am only using players that were registered in the official squad list, I get Arsenal at 62 injuries.

    Your Man City (I’m a city fan) number looks ok if you include John Guidetti who is essentially an academy player.

      For the most part, it’s what is reported on PhysioRoom (see table on right), with some exceptions. Sometimes a player is reported even though he’s been sent on loan to another club. I don’t include those. For example, West Brom’s George Thorne, who is supposedly on loan to Watford.
