Arsenal Rocked As RVP, Vermaelen & Gibbs Add To Growing Injury List

By on August 7, 2011

Arsenal have been rocked by three fresh injuries to Robin van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen and Kieran Gibbs with the season less than a week away.

The Dutch ace scored in the Gunners latest preseason defeat to Benfica and unfortunately for Wenger the 27-year old picked up a knock.

“It is an ankle problem, I don’t know how bad it is,” Wenger told Arsenal.com.

Wenger also has doubts on fullback Kieran Gibbs and Thomas Vermaelen.

“Gibbs has a muscular [thigh] problem and Vermaelen has a slight back problem.”

Gunners fans will be hoping for good news on the key trio as Arsenal already have a growing injury list which includes Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and Laurent Koscielny.

    Seems like Arsene is more interested in keeping players out of internationals than sorting out team problems.Bring someone in to deal with the defensive frailties, tell the world they’re here to deal with the defensive frailties and build confidence in players and fans instead of sweeping things under the carpet
