Arsenal very short of players for Fulham clash

Luckily for Arsenal they are going through a generous period of the fixture list and could probably afford to rotate a little bit, which is just as well as they have EIGHT players on the injury list ahead of this weekends fixture against Fulham.

Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky, Nicklas Bendtner, Theo Walcott, Nacho Monreal, Abou Diaby and Thomas Vermaelen are all extremely doubtful for the game as Wenger explained: “Monreal looks a doubt for Saturday, a big doubt, because he twisted his foot on the kick. It is not the bruise, he turned and twisted the ligament. Rosicky had surgery with a general anaesthetic for a broken nose in two places. With a mask he may be available, but we have to monitor it closely,”

Vermaelen Is Fed Up At Arsenal!

Arsenal’s star defender Thomas Vermaelen declared that he’s fed up with playing on the left-back being forced to do that ever since Santos got injured.

The former Ajax man who is one of the best center-back’s in the league fears that he can’t fulfill his potential playing on the fest side and sates that he prefers to be used in the center after having to play on the left for so long.

“I am fed up playing at left-back,” the 26-year-old Belgian is quoted as saying by The People.
