Injury update on Nasri Nasri is unlikely to be sidelined.

The French midfielder took a blow on his head during Wednesday’s clash with Liverpool and was forced off to be replaced by Tomas Rosicky after just 34 minutes.

But while initial signs were that Nasri had sustained a serious injury after failing to see out the first half, his problem was actually nothing severe.

According to Wenger, the 22-year-old could have completed the match but fears of risking any damage meant Nasri had to be substituted.

“Nasri had a knock on his head. He felt unwell and I didn’t want to take a chance because it was his head.” Wenger said.

“That’s why I took him off. He wanted to stay on but he felt sick so I didn’t want to take a chance.”

  1. And I’m glad we have a manager who doesn’t make players play on when they might have a concussion — very prudent and certainly in the player’s best interest in the long run.

  2. Pray he wil be upright ok!! On wed…4 porto… Arsenal fans are welcome 2the wining treain…~¤¤¤¤~….

  3. good!

    he looked our most lively forward —- at least when a little ‘un gets injured we have tens of thousands more ready to come on!

    the problem is when anyone over 5’10” takes a knock….

  4. I sleept well last night after getting a crucial win to Liverpool!
    Diaby was fantastic with his header and Nikki will do much up front on future as i observed the match!
    But we need advice from Tonny Adms ,an Arsenal legend regarding defending system and protecting the scored goals!
    Coach keeper need to talk to Almunia about the air balls and crosses from the wings.
    Eboue is better this time than Sagna in terms of attack and passing the ball up front,my wish is to rest Sagna on bench and come in later to protect or to stop the fresh remplacement striker of the rival team.
    Mr AW needs to talk to Nikki to shoot the ball once he get it immediately through the net without touching it one ,two ,three times,so that he can scoors more goals.Nasri needs to pass the ball so quickley during the counter-attack without making a lot of dribling etc.
    As amany fans of Arsenal we need to keep our belief because title countenders are loosing important points any where!
    Please fight for the last whristle and never give up!!
    Go Arsenal now your gun is full of bullets!!

  5. And it turned out to be a good call by the Wengster as Rosicky provided the cross for Diaby to nod home the winner.
    I don’t give Wenger any credit for the substitution as he was just wrapping his players up in cotton wool like always.
