Fabregas ruled out of Old Trafford clash
Friday 28 August 2009
Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been ruled out of tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester United.
Fabregas has failed to recover from his hamstring injury in time for Old Trafford but the Gunners have no fresh injury concerns following Wednesday night's 3-1 victory over Celtic.
Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand and Edwin van der Sar remain Manchester United's major absentees.
Sir Alex Ferguson feels Ferdinand may not quite be ready for the trip to Tottenham on 12 September but his recovery from a thigh injury will not keep him out for much longer.
Ben Foster will continue in goal, while Michael Carrick and Anderson are hoping for recalls after missing the five-goal rout of Wigan.
