Henry Touch And Go For PSV
Thierry Henry is only rated as `50:50` for Arsenal`s season-defining game against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.
Thierry suffered a foot injury during the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough and hasn`t scored a goal in the month since (although he has only played 3 games since). The extent of the injury wasn`t initially revealed by Arsenal and speculation that Henry had suffered ligament damage began to surface.
He had an injection before the first game against PSV after the Arsenal medical team advised manager Arsene Wenger that he would suffer no reaction. Unfortunately they were wrong and Henry suffered a serious reaction. The skipper now faces a race against time to be fit.
The other concern for Arsenal fans is the news that Henry is now suffering with a back problem as well.
'Thierry is injured - back and foot - and is 50-50 for the PSV game,' said Arsene Wenger on Friday. 'He has a problem with his foot. We injected him at Eindhoven and it made it worse.
'They said there was no danger. It was just like a bad kick and it was to stop the pain so he could get through the game.
'But I feel he's had injury problems the whole season. The fact he played a lot last year - the Champions League Final and the World Cup Final - has contributed maybe."
