Good news on Denilson
Denilson may only need a week to recover from yesterday’s impromptu injury.
The 21-year-old suddenly slipped to the ground as the match was being restarted after Everton’s second goal with was later confirmed as a back problem.
Denilson gave away possession in that instance and nearly cost Arsenal going down 3-1 as Almunia was called upon to make a superb save.
But the former Sao Paulo man is aiming not to cost Wenger more injury woes and hopes to return to action in no time.
According to Denilson, he should be available for next Sunday’s trip to Bolton.
“I don’t remember what happened. I was just running with the ball and I felt a pain in my side. I couldn’t run or stop the ball, but I feel okay now,” Denilson said.
“I am going to have a scan and then I will know how long I will be injured, but I think I will be ready for Sunday (at Bolton).”
