INJURY UPDATE: For Arsenal Duo Djourou & Fabregas
The initial diagnosis to Johan Djourou’s unfortunate shoulder injury suffered against Manchester United in the FA Cup was that he would be out for the rest of the season. Groans echoed around the Emirates stadium, coming from frustrated Arsenal fans who had already had to suffer without Thomas Vermaelen for the majority of the season. The news about his injury however, began to get better and better, and yesterday it has been reported that the Swiss defender may be back for April 17th – in time for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.
The 24 year old injured his shoulder in a collision with Bacary Sagna, his Arsenal team mate during the United clash on 12th March. The news emerged that reconstructive surgery n the players shoulder was not needed and only a period of rehabilitation was required to see his shoulder recover. It was predicted on the 22nd March that Djourou would be back in training in around a month, so the news that he could be back in just under two weeks is quite surprising – but encouraging for Arsenal.
He had to be stretchered off and was in a considrable amount of pain, but he is sid the be “eyeing” the Liverpool fixture with anicipation for his return.
Meanwhile, Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas was involved in a car accident on his way to training on Monday morning. It was a minor accident, and no-one was hurt, with neither part requiring hospital treatment.
An Arsenal club spokesman confirmed:
“Cesc was involved in a minor car accident on his way to training this morning.
“After the incident, Cesc made his way to our training ground in London Colney and took part in a training session as normal.
“The Police are fully aware of the incident.”
So after a disappointing, unpenetrative performance against Blackburn which saw Wenger’s side draw a blank and walk away with a solitary point, and fall further behind United in the title race, thee is some good news on the injury front for once.
Tell me what you think!
