NO BREAK FOR VERMAELEN!!!
Amazing injury news Arsenal fans. Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Thomas Vermaelen HAS NOT fractured his fibula!
“There is no fracture in Thomas’ leg but his injury still has to be assessed,” said Wenger. “There is still a good chance he will not play on Sunday.
I think we can all breath a huge sigh of relief. There is more good news, Eduardo’s hamstring is only going to be a short term lay-off:
“Eduardo has a small, small, small hamstring. He will be out for one week. He will not make Man United but he might make Chelsea.”
Wenger also confirmed that Emmanuel Eboue and Alex Song will be back for the visit of Manchester United on Sunday:
“However Emmanuel Eboue and Alex Song have been in this morning. Eboue has been running outside. They are both in good shape. Tired but in good shape. Both of them are available for Sunday.”
