Attentions have now turned to club football after the interlull and our next two games are a trip to Manchester United at Old trafford after which we’l host Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League.
Some of our players are still on the sideline but PSG will also be without their key defensive midfielder Adrien Rabiot, a player that has ruled himself out of the game.
Picking up a thigh injury during France’s friendly with Ivory Coast he is set to undergo tests to determine how long he will be sidelined for.
Rabiot has been countless times linked with a move to Arsenal, and he spoke to the press in mix zone and said:
“It’s a tear, I think it’s dead.”
The 21-year-old central midfielder has one goal and two assists in 11 Ligue 1 games this season.
We will also be wiithout Santi Cazorla after the diminutive Spaniard revealed that he is unsure of his return date from an Achilles injury that has been lingering.
Alexis, however, has defied all sense and logic by running off what was supposed to be a hamstring tear. He turned out for Chile against Uruguay on Tuesday and scored a brace.
He is believed to have warmed down after the match by undertaking a triathalon.
