Will Fabregas Recover in time for United Clash?
Monday night, Manchester United will be risking their, and the only unbeaten record in the Premier League in their biggest test of the season – Arsenal. Arsenal on the other hand may be risking the fitness of influential midfield captain – Cesc Fabregas.
Will United remain unbeaten? Will Fabregas be fit enough to play? Will the game live up to all the build up? We will have to wait and see, but in reference to Fabregas hamstring injury, Arsene Wenger has assured fans that he will have the final say on things.
“It will be a very late decision to see if Cesc is in the squad or not.
“We have to assess if it is a risk for him to play and if he is ready to play in a very intense game, then I will make a decision.
“The final decision will be mine. I have the responsibility to make the decision.”
Football is a game of risks, and at the top of the game it is a game of big risks. If Fabregas starts, and after a few minutes pulls up with the same problem that has kept him out, then Wenger may well be left red faced knowing that he had taken a big gamble – and lost. On the other hand, if Fabregas starts, and is influential as he usually is, makes it through most of the game comfortably and helps secure a win for Arsenal, Wenger will be praised for his excellent decision making. It is a decision that could decide the game even before it has started.
Manchester United on the other hand have passed their key players fit for the game. Scholes, Ferdinand and Evra will play after being out for a few games with their own problems.
Old Trafford will be buzzing on the night. These games always bring up unexpected surprises. Things that you “couldn’t have written the script for”, as the commentators always like to scream. It will be a tight, last minute decision, and I cannot wait for the game.
Tell me what you think!
