Fabregas injury likely to prevent return on Sunday
Friday 01 October 2010
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Cesc Fabregas is unlikely to be fit in time for Arsenal's match with Chelsea on Sunday.
The Gunners captain has been out with a hamstring injury for almost two weeks and has been left out of the Spain squad for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Scotland and Lithuania. Asked about the likelihood of Fabregas returning for this weekend's trip to Stamford Bridge, manager Wenger told Arsenal TV Online: "I don't know.
"It looks a 50-50 but a 50-50 balancing on the negative side. I will find out on Saturday morning." Wenger still has a doubt over his goalkeeper Manuel Almunia. "That one is even more difficult," he said. "He has not been in a regular training session. So I will see."
