Wenger Gives Injury Update On Jack Wilshere And Kieran Gibbs


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Wilshere was penned in to start against Liverpool on Saturday but he was withdrawn at the last minute as a result of an ankle injury while Gibbs played the match but had to be removed in the second half after he couped what Wenger confirmed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.

  1. Can Arsenal fc create for us another updated website other than the arsenal.com which takes ages to update the supporters on the happenings, news etc of the players and news? According to what I have read, this news was for a day or 2 days ago. Today is aleady a Monday when the news is coming out.

    There are scan machines, team doctors etc, why keep on saying i don’t know the impact, results after days etc. Just like developing world where everything is unavailable. Ha ha!

    They sign in some good young players but supporters don’t, then you read it from other website that Arsenal have signed an exciting young player, what is arsenal.com for?

  2. We always read history on arsenal.com because we get news elsewhere and wait for days, weeks or even more before it surfaces on official website. Eg the players who have recovered from injury or nearing recovery, nothing at all yet there those who have progressed positively.

    We are concerned and we would love to see periodical progress of such things, but we read them elsewhere etc.
