Match: Arsenal vs
Date: 29 November 2009, Sunday
Venue: Emirates Stadium,
Time: 16.00 GMT
Arsenal has a number of injury blows to deal with. Gunners are already missing some of their best players including two in-form strikers Robin Van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner. Midfielder Abou Diaby and regular left back Gael Clichy are also out of action. The recent injury blow hit at Arsenal camp is Kieran Gibbs, who was deputizing for
Meanwhile, influential central midfielder William Gallas is also doubtful for Sunday’s high profile clash. The veteran sustained an eye injury after colliding with teammate Andrei Arshavin. However, manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful that both Gallas and Arshavin would be fit for the match against
New York Times reported:
"Gallas has an ankle problem and a swollen eye," said manager Arsene Wenger. "I think he will recover for Sunday, we hope so. It wasn't concussion but he couldn't see anymore because his eye was swollen.
"Arshavin has some staples in his head. He will be available for Sunday," he added.
So, you can see that Arsene Wenger do not have much options left to choose from for his attacking line up. Eduardo and Carlos Vela are the contenders for Arsenal’s forward line up, but the duo are not performing at their best at the moment. If Wenger decides to play one striker as he has been doing recently, then Eduardo is more likely to start, leaving Vela in the bench. In defense, Gallas (if fit) would pair up with Vermaelen, but in case he fails to recover from the eye injury in time, Philippe Senderos will be deputizing for Gallas. Sagna will occupy at the right back position as usual.
When it comes to midfield, Arsenal has a number of quality options, despite the absence of Diaby. Gunners have a holding midfielder like Song, while captain Cesc Fabregas and Arshavin play the create role. Nasri and Denilson are also there alongside Ramsey and Rosicky. Theo Walcott returned in action as he came from bench in the champions league win on Tuesday, but it is less likely that Wenger would feature the youngster in the starting eleven against
ESPN Soccernet reported:
"The only thing I would say with Theo is that every time I have rushed him back he has got injured again," he said. "This time, I have decided to take the time to get him completely 100% fit to come back.
"You know they are a good side and, to beat them, you have to deliver a good performance," he said. "It is more important we focus on what we do than any strength or weakness of
"They are a strong side and have a good manager in Carlo Ancelotti, but I still believe that despite all that, we can still beat them. Let us expect them to be strong on the day, and then let us be stronger."
"Frank is fit, yes," said Ancelotti after the
midfielder injured his thigh on international duty. "He trained for the last two days and did very well. He's in good condition. I think that our physio and our doctor worked very well with him. He is a fantastic professional player. He stayed to improve his condition for a long time in Cobham." England
"He stayed one hour with the doctor for treatment and 80 hours – I don't know – in Cobham here to work," confirmed Ancelotti. "But it is a very important game because Arsenal are one of the most important teams in
