Rosicky Out For Three Weeks

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..

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.
