Arsenal Injured Again

Arsenal Football Club News | Football365 | Premier League | DOUBLE BLOW FOR GUNNERS
Arsenal have two more injury worries to contend with after Alex Song and Theo Walcott picked up knocks against Everton on Tuesday night.

Defensive midfielder Song is struggling with a leg problem having been inadvertently kicked by team-mate Laurent Koscielny during the Gunners' 2-1 win at Emirates Stadium and replaced by Abou Diaby.

Young winger Walcott, meanwhile, completed the full 90 minutes but was left nursing an ankle problem after the final whistle.

This comes on top of the other news that,
Samir Nasri picked up a hamstring problem in Sunday's FA Cup win over Huddersfield.

Wenger has confirmed the French star will be out for three weeks after undergoing a scan on the injury, meaning he will miss the Gunners' crucial UEFA Champions League tie against Barcelona at the Emirates on February 16th.
... and,
Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to be sidelined for the rest of the season.

The Poland international damaged his shoulder earlier this term and he aggravated the problem during a warm-up ahead of their match with Manchester City.

Now Fabianski is having surgery which is set to sideline him for the remainder of the season.

So Szczesny it is, for the long-term. And Arshavin, Diaby and 'Sicky will have roles to play too. But Arsenal will be without their most (more) defensively-minded midfielder, perhaps forcing Wilshere and maybe Fabregas a little further away from goal.

    Is Ignasi Miquel the 3rd center back now? Wenger has really pushed it this time.

  2. Squillaci (sp?), when he returns from suspension. But yes, Ars are thin at the back aren't they?
