Wenger Claims Gallas Could Miss Chelsea Clash

Wenger Claims Gallas Could Miss Chelsea Clash

Arsene Wenger says that former Chelsea defender, William Gallas is a 'major doubt' for the top of the table clash with his old club at Ashburton Grove this Sunday.

The French defender suffered a rather tasty looking swollen eye after he clashed heads with team mate Andrei Arshavin, as the Gunners won their Champions League group with a 2-0 victory over Standard Liege in mid week.

Gallas' eye puffed up immediately and he was barely able to see, he briefly returned to the action but was replaced at half time.

Wenger confirmed he may miss that match. 'There is a big question mark about him at the moment, I cannot say that William Gallas will play, unfortunately. The ankle should be alright but the eye is still very, very, very swollen.'

'He wears contact lenses and at the moment he would not get them in. We hope on Sunday it will be better. He is not comfortable but I am optimistic because we still have three days.'


If he doesn't play it would be a huge loss to us, he and Vermaelen have formed a formidable partnership this season and we need to be on the top of our game to emerge victorious in this most vital of football matches.

Who do we think the front 3 are going to be? Assuming he plays a midfield of Fab, Song & Denilson and the defense picks itself(silvestre instead of traore). Who out of Eduardo, Vela, Walcott, Nasri, Ros, Arshavin. I think Eduardo and Arshavin are defs with maybe Nasri???

Rosicky i reckon, need as many leaderish players out there as poss. Think the main question will be who'll lead the line.

A 1 eyed Willy is better than Silvestre. We might have to hook him up to Phil Brown style headest and direct him round the pitch "left billy, Right Billy, Slide tackle, up, sprint, slight left"

I'd say Tommy Gunn has to play. Not only is he brilliant going forward, slick and precise ... but he can tackle too ... and that's something we're going to need.
