Song misses next two league games through suspension
Alex Song will miss Arsenal’s next two Premier League games against Burnley and Hull City after picking up his 10th booking of the season against Stoke yesterday.
The 22-year-old Cameroonian international was jostling with Rory Delap for the ball before Peter Walton subsequently booked Song for a seemingly innocuous challenge.
Song’s suspension could coincide with the return of Abou Diaby who should recover from a knee injury by the time Arsenal play Burnley next Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have released the following statement concerning Aaron Ramsey’s shocking leg break.
“During yesterday’s match against Stoke City, Aaron Ramsey sustained fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Yesterday evening he underwent surgery.
“The operation successfully reduced the fractures and whilst it is too soon to state an exact timescale for recovery, Aaron will certainly miss the remainder of this season. Our thoughts are with Aaron at this time and everyone at the Club wishes him all the best in making as speedy a return to action as possible.”
