It is opening day match of the new season of English Premier League and Arsenal has to travel to
Liverpool without some of their important players. Johan Djourou and striker Nicklas Bendtner are already out of question and Midfielder Alex Song, Denilson and Abou Diaby might not be fit enough. So, manager Arsene Wenger has some real problems.
A few days ago, Wenger stated that Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie might get rest until the end of August. However, now, the coach has changed his mind and he might call these two players who played in World Cup Football for
Spain and . Netherlands
Wenger said, "We have some problems with Bendtner and Djourou. Bendtner will be out for four weeks I think with a groin problem, but we have Ramsey who is coming back in November now. All the rest of the injuries are short term.
Alex Song has a calf problem and will be short. Denilson will have a test on Friday or Saturday on an abdominal problem. Diaby has a calf problem, but he is back in full training. He might be available and Andrey Arshavin is all right. But I still have to make a decision about whether I will include van Persie and Fabregas in the squad."
In the match against
Liverpool, the fans might see Jack Wilshere in the first eleven because of all the injury news. The fans will most probably see Laurent Koscielny in the match.
