Vermaelen set for X-ray, Eduardo out for Sunday
There will be yet another nervy wait over injury news after Wednesday’s match with Aston Villa.
Arsenal’s latest man to go down is Thomas Vermaelen who hobbled off after the half-hour mark in the 0-0 draw at Villa Park.
The Belgian was replaced by Sol Campbell with a leg injury which is suspected to be severe.
Arsene Wenger revealed his ever-present defender was in bad condition as the Gunners prepared for their trip back to London and is set for a major diagnosis in the next few days.
“Thomas Vermaelen we don’t know, there will be an x-ray. He is on crutches and it is a fibula injury. We have to check tomorrow morning if it is just a nerve or a broken bone”
The manager revealed more injury woes as Eduardo – who limped off after 62 minutes – is now ruled out of the clash with Manchester United.
“Eduardo has a hamstring strain, a small one but for Sunday [Manchester United at home] he will be out.”
