Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he has some injury concerns going into the UEFA champions league group F clash with Borussia Dortmund. Arsenal currently have the likes of Podolski, Chamberlain, Walcott, Abou Diaby and Flamini out due to injury but aside those, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs have joined the list of injured players.
Wilshere was penned in to start against Liverpool on Saturday but he was withdrawn at the last minute as a result of an ankle injury while Gibbs played the match but had to be removed in the second half after he couped what Wenger confirmed to be a calf injury. Both players could play against Dortmund but their participation is still not 100% certain according to Wenger.
“Honestly, it’s too early to say. Gibbs looks muscular – that’s not good news,” Wenger revealed. “It is a calf problem, I don’t know how bad it is.
“Jack had a little ankle inflammation and maybe he will be better,” Wenger added. “We have to wait until Monday. It is not long-term.”
With Arsenal already without several key players, it would be great if the duo of Wilshere and Gibbs can make the Dortmund match as the squad is already fragile as it is at the moment.
