Arsenal face Chelsea tonight looking to go one step further in their quest to finally win a silverware. The Gunners although have had a flying start to their campaign, their defeat against Dortmund revealed their vulnerability against big teams. The clash with Mourinho’s Chelsea will prove to be another major test for Wenger’s men.
Here is a round up of all the latest injury updates that Arsène Wenger has revealed:
On Mathieu Flamini
He has a scan today and then we will get the results as to how long he will be out. It doesn’t look like a bad muscle injury but honestly it’s too early to give you a precise answer. It’s a groin injury.
Yes, he is OK to play.
On Mikel Arteta
He is suspended for one game, so I will not appeal.
On other injuries
Serge Gnabry has a problem, he got a kick on the ankle. He will be assessed tomorrow. After that we will decide who plays and who doesn’t play. I will decide [on Tuesday]. Eisfeld has a back problem.
On Gedion Zalalem
He is not yet available. He had a knee problem. He is back in full training but he has not played yet. He will play 45 minutes with the under-18 team later this week.
On Emmanuel Frimpong
He is still short of competition. Isaac Hayden will be involved, Ryo and Gnabry if he’s fit.Published 29 Oct 2013, 02:33 IST
