Wenger gives update on Alex Song
Alex Song is struggling to stay on his feet at the moment according to Arsene Wenger.
The Cameroonian limped off in pain as Arsenal trailed at half-time against Everton and had to be replaced by Abou Diaby.
But while the Gunners managed to turn their fortunes later on Tuesday night, Song failed to recover from his injury and could now face a spell on the sidelines.
If the 23-year-old is indeed ruled out for Saturday’s visit to Newcastle, Arsene Wenger may rue a sudden decrease in his squad’s options after already losing Nasri and Denilson to injuries on Sunday while Vela and Ramsey have been sent out on loan.
The knock Song was believed to have sustained was initially reported as a thigh problem but after the match, Wenger was unable to give a clear diagnosis on the midfielder’s injury and the Frenchman hardly gave any positive news on the player’s current condition.
“He cannot walk. I don’t know what he has got. He was kicked, I think it was by Koscielny, he knocks out everybody in our team. So we have to see how he responds to that in the next days, but he cannot walk at the moment.” Wenger said.
