Arsenal Hit By Double Injury Blow As Two Attackers Ruled Out

Arsenal’s injury problems continue after both Yossi Benayoun and Benik Afobe have been ruled out.

Summer signing Benayoun picked up a side strain during Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Shrewsbury and claims he will be out for around a week or so. The injury rules him out of Saturday’s game against Bolton and Next weeks tie with Olympiakos, and leaves him as a doubt to face rivals Tottenham next Sunday.

Youngster Afobe will be devastated after being ruled out for at least 4 months from a groin strain picked up last month while playing for the reserves. The exciting attacker was promoted to the first team squad this season and was looking to force his way into Arsene Wenger’s plans as well as play a part in the Gunners Carling Cup campaign.  But the injury will leave him frustrated on the sidelines until at least the end of January.
