Wenger fears Abou Diaby could be sidelined by the injury he suffered against Bolton.

The midfielder was given a break after international duty with France and was later handed a cameo as he replaced Jack Wilshere with half an hour left.

But Diaby only lasted 10 minutes on the pitch after a strong tackle from Paul Robinson left him frustrated in pain.

The 24-year-old could only limp towards the sidelines and Wenger feels Robinson’s challenge was harsher than the one which saw Cahill sent off just moments before.

“The challenge (by Robinson on Diaby) has been worse because I have seen the leg of Diaby and it doesn’t look too good. The referee must not have seen it but the tackle was not good.”

While the Bolton man escaped without any punishment, Diaby’s injury woes remained and the Arsenal boss is having a nervy wait over the results of his scan.

“We will have to wait (on whether he will miss the Braga game). I am worried, but I hope we will have some good news tomorrow. He is having a scan – he doesn’t feel his ankle because he got a big kick on his shin.”
