Rosicky Out For Three Weeks

Arsene Wenger has revealed that midfield maestro Tomas Rosicky will miss at least three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow`s game with Porto Wenger said: "It is a bit of a shame for him because it`s his third injury so far.

"What is surprising is that it is exactly the same injury that he`s had before, except on the other side. It is a muscle tear between his hamstring and his groin.

The Frenchman also says that it may be his fault that Rosicky has suffered again: "Perhaps I played him a little too early against Fulham and I tried to take him off after 60 minutes against Tottenham."

The Czech international has only just returned from the exact same injury and will now miss the crunch games with Porto in the Champions League and Chelsea in the Premiership.

Rosicky has played a crucial role in the little success that Arsenal have had this season, his inter-play with Cesc Fabregas and Alex Hleb has been outstanding.

A pity, this lad has fitted right into our style of play. Hasnt needed time to settle in and looks an arsenal player. I think he can become the goal-scoring midfielder we lack at the moment. Well, here's to hoping he is back in 3 weeks and arsene doesnt rush him this time.

look at it this way folks, we have rosicky, henry, lauren and diaby all coming back in january, that will set us wel for the new year for a real assult in the league as well as europe, just hope that we pick up maximum points in all our games this month, and things can change very quickly then, once all these guys are back when the team is on a good run..

I can feel a real pasting coming on at Chelsea on Sunday :(
Rocky7
man, what is it with us and injuries, we are becoming like spuds with all these players crying off. i have never known us to have so many injuries. i think something is wrong with the training or the new football boots, something like that.
PUREGOLD
Come on Rocky, where's that fighting spirit of yours? :) Will you be coming down on Sunday?
Westl
know what ya mean rocky, and westl, we can't afford the chelsea burgers, i heard Roman charges 20 a burger but you do get some of his imported caviar ;)
PUREGOLD
lets hope baptista and Theo deffo get their chance to shine now, one door shuts another opens ;)
PUREGOLD
Do you reckon you can summon up a decent XI for Sunday?
merlin
yep PG, lets hope so. I would like to see Theo start against Chelsea - throw the kid into the deep end and hope he swims. That would be heart-warming to see.
prits
We got a decent enough team always merlin, but to play Chelsea we need a 100% fit strong squad which we have not got for saturday and i'm not too optimistic for that day anymore.
gunner-minesh
Who are you playing on Saturday? Two fixtures in 24 hours are too much even for a big, healthy squad!
Westl
There's fighting spirit and then there's knowing that you have 3 of the finest players in the world missing, three players that are the spine of the squad. It's hard enough to try and dislodged a Chelsea side who have a more than impressive record at home with a full team, but we're down to the bare bones, and it will be one hell of a job. I love my team but I'm a realist, it is one hell of a task. A point would be well worth celebrating. And no West1, tickets for away fixtures like that (especially the London fixtures) are like golddust!!

STAND UP IF YOU HATE ARS*NAL!
