Arsenal will 'hit' at Camp Nou


Wenger must prepare for return to many questions in nursing. The cracks are in the air to the fans 'gunner'.

Arsenal got up on the wrong foot the day after facing Barcelona and so stayed. Not a day no news of new lesions. The nurses 'gunner' is becoming increasingly populated. Worse, the best players in the Arsenal are the most affected. First it was Cesc and Walcott. Catalan felt discomfort in the hamstring against Stoke City on Sunday and missed the final of the Carling. Is expected to be ready for the match at the Camp Nou, but will not arrive in the best conditions. Walcott broke into the same game. In your case the ankle was the affected area and is serious doubt for the return to Barcelona.

The last to fall was Van Persie, who reached the final of the Carling with discomfort in the isquiotibilaes and left without the crown and knee problems. The Dutchman had to be replaced and Wenger said the injury "does not look good."

For the time is out for the next game against Leyton Orient and the most optimistic talk that he might be a point against Sunderland. The player is awaiting the results of more medical tests. What's more, the whole 'gunner' for some time that can not count on Thomas Vermaelen, the soul of the Arsenal back. The bolt that misses both Wenger.

The Dutchman suffered a few weeks of his injured Achilles tendon and there is still no date set for his return. Low is also the goal Lukasz Fabianski, but is no longer expected this season with a shoulder injury. Emmanuel Frimpong, also not played since suffering an injury of crusaders in the early going. It is not the first time that Arsenal suffered a cascade of injuries in key stage of the season. Muscle injury has been the Achilles heel of the English side.

Last academic year, for example, had to 'play-off' of the second English as a veteran Sol Campbell. Van Persie himself was immersed in the recovery from a serious injury at this stage of the season. Cesc 'fall' in the first leg at the Emirates. Against Barcelona. After hitting the foot of Puyol.

With the nurses filled in a team with many players of glass, Wenger is expected to play again to dismissal alignment for the match in the Nou Camp on March 8. The French coach surprised and aligning leg Nasri, whose ownership was not included in most pools.

In any case it is expected that the French take chances in a game that appears vital in the season 'gunner'. Moreover with the collapse in the Carling. After six years without a title, the pressure is more than ever on the backs of Wenger. (via SPORT)
