Two players injured for Arsenal after Spurs win
Arsenal have lost the services of their ‘Tom’ duo.
Tomas Rosicky and Thomas Vermaelen are likely to be sidelined during the midweek international break and could also be ruled out of next Saturday’s visit to Anfield.
The Czech international produced a terrific display which saw him register his name on the score sheet for the first time in two years while his Belgian teammate managed to see out challenge from Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor for much of the game despite conceding goals from Spurs’ attacking duo early in the first half.

But following a fully committed performance in the north London derby, Rosicky and Vermaelen will be back on the sidelines after suffering a back problem and ankle injury respectively.
Rosicky, who has spent most of his Arsenal career out of action, sustained his injury through fatigue as the game wore on, but Vermaelen’s ankle injury was inflicted by a ferocious tackle from Scott Parker late in the derby – an offense which saw the Tottenham midfielder sent off for a second booking before he apologized to Vermaelen for the damage he had caused.
According to Wenger, Rosicky and Vermaelen are now in doubt to make next weekend’s visit to Liverpool.
“Unfortunately we had some bad news for Rosicky today, and Vermaelen as well. Vermaelen has an ankle problem, and Rosicky a back problem.” Wenger said
“I don’t think they will be available for Wednesday, whether they are available for Saturday is a big doubt.’

i THOUGHT YOU WHERE GOING TO SAY THE FAILED DRUG TESTS FOR EPHEDRINE OR KOLO JUICE YOU EX PLAYER
Think these might be ‘convenient’ injuries in an international week. Milan not until 6th March. Wouldnt be surprised to see them at Anfield
i want them to play against liverpool, their going to be alright
Let’s all laugh at Tottnumb.
Every faithful arsenal fans regardless of age, shud know dat the north london derby is a game of tentacity for d two teams dat will definite bring one or two injuries but nevertheless the win for arsenal against spur is a soothy balm for injuries of d Tom’s. By and large my allegiance for dis CLUB remains on change.
thank God for what he has done for the gunners today and i belive he can do more than that if we arsenal fans can appresiate him he will do more for the Gunners.UP GUNNRES – GUNNRS 4 LIVE !!!!
thank god for the win they really made my day
Why is it I always think they will come back – they were the real deal today Congratulations to all!!!
Let put our hands cross and pray that God will see them true even b4 the wensday match
Bale had a lot to say yesterday. What is he saying today? Arsenal to finish 3rd. Chelski and Liverpool to fight out 4th.
My dear GUNNERS, u hv made my year. Keep it up congrat.
Kudos 2 u guys, u realy made my day to b more impressive. For both Tom’s (if they got injured) i pry u recover cos i want to c u playing at anfield
Doctors step up and save arsenal, i don’t like to see djourou in arsenal shirt again.
Spurs had one defeat in fifteen games to MC. So they were due a blip. You never know.
As games come thick and fast,who knows.If the gunners carry on the sam vein they could even get third place.
To do thta they have to get a result at Liverpool. The reds buoyed by the CC win could be tougher opponents .They also want a cl berth. However if the gunners play with this tenacity there is no reason why they can’t win.Kenny may elect to play anti soccer.
It’s probably the only positive stuff this season. In all euphorie, let’s not forget we are short of at least a proven creative midfielder, and a proven 20+ scorer upfront. At least half a dozen by-runners need be struck of the payroll, highly paid bench warmers with erratic on/off performances are a liability, nothing else.
well done gunners still lots of work to do.just keep up the fighting spirit.great jod guys.
Wenger please let them play they will be alright no matter what happen to them
Wenger please let them play they will be alright no matter what happen.

A big THANK YOU to all The Arsenal players for the winning this fantastic match.
Am so happy to watch a rejuvenated arsenal team.i remain an arsenal faithful.
Don’t let the media brush Bale’s blatant diving under the carpet just coz he is one of ‘Arry’s good old lads.
Spread the word fellow Gooners…….BALE IS A DIVING CHEAT!!!!
I tank all arsenal player for d wonderful performance over spure last sunday, more progress
