As usual, after an international break, football teams across the globe are sweating on the injury update of their players. Non more so than our beloved Gunners.
The number of times in recent memory that we have lost vital players to injury incurred on international duty is uncountable.
Unfortunately, this time is no different.
Arsene Wenger gave news on Gallas, Sagna, Bendtner, Cesc and Djourou to the clubs official website.
"Unfortunately we have lost some players over the 10 days - William Gallas (hamstring), Bacary Sagna (knee) and Nicklas Bendtner (ankle)," said Wenger.
"These are heavy losses and we have to compensate them.
"Fortunately the three of them don`t look to be out for a long, long time but they will be out for the weekend game and I think the game on Tuesday.
"As well as them, Djourou got concussion during his game with Swizterland and will be assessed tomorrow to see if he is available. He does not look too bad and he could have a good chance to play.
"I am still waiting for Robin to come back [after international duty] so I don`t know about him. However he should be OK. He went with a muscle problem but he came on after 56 minutes last night and, from the reports I got, he should be alright. Both of them will be assessed.
"Also I am told Cesc has a broken nose. It should not stop him playing. He is here now [at the training ground] and is being assessed.
"At least Abou Diaby is back in the squad again," the manager added. "Even though he has not played games he will be used, at the least in the squad, because we have lost those three players."
