More Injury Worries

More Injury Worries

Both Emmanuel Adebayor and Emmanuel Eboue face fitness tests ahead of Arsenal`s trip up to 'Boro.

Eboue suffered an ankle injury during the 2-2 draw with Spu*s last week while Adebayor picked up a knee injury during the 3-1 demolition of spurs on Wednesday.

Speaking after the victory over Spurs Wenger said: "Adebayor has been touched at his knee." We will see how he reacts later.

"Eboue had a test this morning and will have one tomorrow morning. We`ll make a decision after training then."

Meanwhile William Gallas (thigh), Freddie Ljungberg (hamstring), Alex Hleb (hamstring) and Julio Baptistia (groin) will all miss the game with Boro.

FFS, what is it with all the injuries? It appeared that that had all blown over when we got 99% of our squad fit, and that lasted all of one game. Now we only have two fit strikers. Aliadiere, it's your time to shine son!

im glad Adebayor is out, we will likely play Ali on the right of a 451 with TH14 up front Saturday - shame Baptista is out i would love to see how him and Henry do together for 90 minutes

For Eboue, Hoyte is doing well tho. Ade is the one we must worry about, as he is such hard working felow.

bootoo, you're glad adebayor is out?!?! WTF?

I hope denilson gets a chance on play on the right against boro since he did really well against sp*rs.

I actually think it will be fun to see TH14 and Alialialialialialiadaire up front together for a game. They both have pace and skill, I could really see defenders put under pressure with some long runs and one-twos.

These late injury news ain't good. Why is Gallas' "mysterious" injury dragging on for this long?
