Arsenal's Alex Hleb I.I.A.

Arsenal's Alex Hleb I.I.A.

Alex Hleb is set to miss Arsenal's clash with Wigan at Ashburton Grove on Saturday as the great international curse strikes again.

Hleb, arguably Arsenal's best player so far this season, was hauled off at half time after suffering an injury to a unknown part of his anatomy.

The Belarusian coach give his prognosis. "Hleb could miss up to two weeks."

Hleb is set to join five other Gooners on the sidelines. Although the news coming from is not yet available, Hleb, van Persie & Cesc (along with others) will all be missing.

Jeez, our central midfield has taken quite a hammering. Who'll play? Denilson & ...........

The whole midfield is looking thin. Denilson, Diarra, Rosicky & Eboue look as though they will be all we will have. Gilberto & Song making the bench maybe. Walcott for one of the wide positions?
22/11/2007 18:25:00
Diarra, of course. I keep forgetting about him.
22/11/2007 18:26:00
Yeah Diarra, I keep forgetting about him too, I even forget what he looks like.

he's a younger twin to Makelele - but looks different - but could play in the same way as him - even though the French use him at RB and we will use him as DM. Simple eh?

Interesting midfield choices for Le Boss on Saturday. It's Wigan at home, but you can't take it for granted what with their off the field problems. Usual back four, I'd like to see Eduardo and Ade up front. Eboue, Diarra playing Flamini's role, Denilson and Tomas making the midfield four. Mad Jens, Senderos (back according to, Theo, Bendtner and who knows which unknown midfielder we have available to complete the 5 subs.

we still look strong even with all these players missing

I agree with Fran, I'm looking forward to seeing Diarra, he's really impressed me in his limited outings. This is why a big squad is crucial, we've lost all those players and yet can field Eboue, Diarra, Denilson and Rosicky, that's still pretty strong.

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
