Every once in a while, players due to injuries, lack of form or differences with the manager, are frozen out and forgotten about. Below are six players whose contributions to their Premier League clubs this season have been very minimal.
1Mathieu Debuchy (Arsenal)
When Arsenal signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle in 2014, the Gunners must have thought they had signed a capable replacement for Bacary Sagna.
Two serious injuries in the first few months of his Arsenal career, followed by the emergence of Hector Bellerin has seen Debuchy’s play a bit-part role at Arsenal.
An unimpressive loan spell at Bordeaux only served to drop his stock even further. Since the start of the 2016/17 season, the French defender has made only one appearance in a Gunners shirt; against Bournemouth where he was stretchered off after 16 minutes.
It is more than likely he has played his last game for the Gunners and will be shipped off this summer.
