Arsenal are going to play West Brom at their home on Saturday in the Premier League. Arsene Wenger gave the latest injury news ahead of it on Thursday.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Arsene Wenger put the rumors to rest, of an early return for Johan Djourou, as he confirmed that Djourou is out for at least 6 weeks with a very little possibility to feature again this season. He will have arthroscopy on Monday to get more details on the extent of the injury as Wenger hoped for good news.
Cesc Fabregas has also been ruled out for Saturday as Wenger revealed that he will be back after the International break. Walcott is also not available for this weekend and also for England in the International break.
Alex Song with a knee, Wojciech Szczesny with a finger and Abou Diaby with a groin injury are all ruled out for their respective times.
Arsene Wenger on Thursday said:
“Johan Djourou is out for at least six weeks. There’s a little chance [he will play again this season], he has an arthroscopy on Monday and we will know more about the damage in his shoulder. We hope we will have good news but no matter what happens he will be out for six weeks.
Cesc Fabregas is out for the game on Saturday. He should be back after the international break, maybe, he has a chance, but he is not available for the weekend. Walcott is not available for the weekend and he has no chance [for the international break]. He is not available for England.”
