Gallas To Miss Derby Game
Arsenal Captain William Gallas will not make his return from injury this weekend when Arsenal visit local rivals Tottenham 'We'll do it next year, next year, next year' Hotspur.
The French centre half had been expeting to return in time to face the old enemy, but he will now have to wait for the return match to do battle.
On a brighter note, another Frenchman will return for Arsenal. Bacary Sagna has recovered from a back injury sustained against Manchester City so he will return to plat at right back.
Arsene Wenger delivered the news to Arsenal.com on Thursday afternoon: 'Bacary Sagna is available again.
'He still has some pain but he should be OK if needed.
'However we won't have William Gallas available because it is too early for him.'
