RvP Surgery As Injury List Grows
Arsenal`s injury list did seem as though it was beginning to subside as Diaby, Adebayor and Henry returned to fitness.
Unfortunately the injury list has once again started to grow with the news that Gallas has suffered yet another set back and Robin Van Persie has had surgery on his injured foot.
As it stands the following players will miss Sunday`s game with Bolton: Willam Gallas (thigh), Robin Van Persie (foot), Alex Hleb (hamstring), Eboue (ankle), Ljungberg (hamstring) and Djourou (hamstring) and you can add Gilberto to that list as he is suspended.
"We have so many that my memory is not good enough to remember them all," said Wenger.
Wenger also says that Gallas is going to need to be more patient in his return to fitness to avoid further injury: "The biggest problem is to fight his impatience," said Wenger. "He has had two setbacks because he tried to rush back.
"And I feel we are guilty of helping him to rush back. I will take the needed time now. My biggest worry after such a long injury is that he needs to be really ready.
"He should be back in two to three weeks but I still would not like to put any set time on it."
