Arsenal shall take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this week. The Gunners last visit here did not go the way it was supposed to with the team stumbling to a 1-0 defeat, courtesy of a Darren Bent finish.
Among those injured include the names of: Theo, RVP, Nikko, Aaron. The boss had given us an update on Abou’s status before the match against SC Braga.
“I’m vague [about the length of Diaby’s absence] because it’s the ankle on which he had surgery,” said the manager.
“I was very anxious because he had a scan yesterday [Monday] and with Diaby there are always bad surprises on the scan. But the scan looks quite promising.
“We don’t know how long he will be out as we don’t know how long the inflammation will take to go down.”
However the clubs official website yesterday stated that Abou and Tommy- V are expected to be back in the squad to face West Brom next week. ( So I guess it’s not that bad after all… )
THE TEAM SHOULD LOOK SOMETHING LIKE THIS :
SUBS : FABIANSKI, EBOUE, DJOUROU, VELA, DENILSON, GIBBS, NASRI
Best of luck lads….
