Cesc admits fears of broken leg + Gallas injury worry


Written by Chris Wheatley

38 Comments  

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas told reporters that he fears he has broken his leg, with the Spaniard set to have an X-ray on his fibula tomorrow.

The 22-year-old is currently on crutches, and revealed to the English media after the Barcelona draw that he has worries about a possible ‘broken leg’.

Fabregas had been a doubt to even make the Barca game after picking up a knee injury in the 1-1 draw with Birmingham on Saturday and on Tuesday Arsene Wenger said he had a “40% chance” to play.

“I do not think it is going to be good news, but still I hope there will be,” said Fabregas.

“When I took the penalty, I was quite strong, but after when I went to get the ball, I could not walk any more.

“It is the fibula. I think I put my leg between Puyol’s when I was fouled, and kicked it.”

Meanwhile, William Gallas could miss the rest of the season due to the defender picking up another injury on Wednesday night.

French international Gallas suffered a recurrence of his calf injury during the 2-2 draw with Barcelona.

The Gunners boss told Canal +: “He pulled his calf muscle and I think it’s the end of the season for him. I think he will be ready for the World Cup.”

if he does get sidelined for the coming weeks, its time for arshavin to step up like he did last season. if he can, he might carry the team for the BPL and at least into the CL semis.

I doubt Arshavin will step up, he’s probably out for a couple of weeks as it is. I wonder if this will hinder Gallas’ chances of a contract renewal? I don’t think that Cesc has broken anything tbh but if he has, he’s managed to do it just by burying that penalty!

i hope not

they said the same about vermalaen at aston villa when he went off and he came back in ten days i think. i dont think we have missed gallas this season when he was out injured. sol campbell is the man

come on you gooners

How and when cud cesc have broken his leg?? U surely can’t take a penalty like that with a broken leg, no matter how much adrenaline is pumping through your body! Let’s just hope it is a similar worry than vermaelens was a couple months ago, and just a bit of bruising!

On sky now as well. He thinks he done it when winning the penalty. He isnt sure but isnt optimistic. He thinks his fibula is broke.

I hope the Arsenal “fans” who left with over 30 minutes to go,one saying “I’ve seen enough of this rubbish”,reflect on missing a third of one of the best matches ever played in this country and a stirring Arsenal fightback.Anyone would have been outclassed by Barca in the first 30 minutes.Huge credit is due to the team for salvaging a draw.Ultimately we will suffer because of Wenger’s inability to sign decent squad coverand some experience.We suffered 4 serious injuries tonight

With Cesc and Arshavin out Nasri really has to step up 2 another level now. The same level he was when he as at Marsielle

Not trying to draw away from the severity of Cesc going off, but does anyone else think that in the title picture Xavi and Pique have ‘that don’t impress me much’ body language? Re Cesc: don’t know what more he has to do to prove he’s top 5 in the world. How many players would carry on with that injury? Fantastic character.

Cesc has a suspected broken leg!!! This is awful news but im afraid as much as i love them the blame has to lay with him, the medical team and leboss… Cesc was clearly not fit enough to play the game but the decision was left up to him…mistake number 1…hthe plays and is clearly not rightor subbed…mistake number 2…he then takes and score a penalty breaking his leg and walks back onto the pitch when wenger tells him to stay off…final and most lethal mistake.. Absolutly gutted just hope he can recover in time for the world cup and… Read more »

@thundertinytgooner : youre right. these players do love arsenal and despite their young age and lack of winning experience, they do fight for a win and put the best performance as they can. its down to the manager actually to always have 2 or 3 players with real mental strength, composure and character to keep the whole team on their toes and commit for 90 minutes every single game. cesc is born with that talent, vermalaen has it too but he is still new to the team, gallas is another one but his injured, rvp too and he is out… Read more »

Jesus Christ! With Cesc out it makes you think; “f*cking hell, if only Aaron was fit…” Seems to me we need to recall Jack Wilshere from Bolton, is that possible 2 do before the season ends btw?

One of the most amazing matches I have seen! Barsa must have had the ball for 80% of the time in the first 60 mnutes. Barsa is the best and one can fully undertand why Real spent so much money to compete i La Liga against them.WE consistently gave it away….Almunia’s saves were incredible, his gaff’s, normal. he spirit in this team is wonderful and the fact that Eboue and Theo on that right side changed the match. NO matter what happens the rest of the season, I feel that this is a squad on their way to a big… Read more »

theo wallcott is useful against a team like this because they dont push him around, so he can play his game.

what commitment from our captain
even though he was injured he still stayed on the pitch to help out his
teammates
just hope that he hasnt done more damage to the injury by staying on the pitch
as if he’s out it would be a massive blow for your title challenges
COME ON GUNNERS!!!!!!

I hope the rest of our players learned something from the CAPTAIN. He now played in at least 5 games where others (like Arshavin) wouldn’t bother to show up on the stadium as support. I think we really missed Gallas at the end of the season. Vermaelen is guilty IMO for the second, and Almunia for the first one, but credit to Almunia, he kept us alive when needed, he made some brilliant saves (I still think we must replace him with Tech9). Overall a good result. We shouldn’t be afraid at Nou Camp like we were afraid at the… Read more »

wat do you guys think if we play like this at the nou camp…using the 4-4-2
almunia
sagna song vermaelen clichy
eboue denilson diaby nasri
walcott bendtner
subs: campbell, rosicky, eduardo, vela, merida, fabianski, eastmond

we need eboue,sagna and walcott to be involved right from kick off for us to have any chance and to put pressure on there defence… wat do u guys think?

Its a sensible line-up, but it’ll be with Nasri or Eboue pushed up to make a front 3. Still can’t believe how good Denilson was when he came on last night.

good line-up, but id still put eboue in right back and song in denilsons place, as well as campbell on.
Eboue gives the surprise factor when attacking as a defender, and as a midfielder its expected that he will attack

but i think playing 3 midfielders against iniesta,messi,xavi,pedro might be too dengerous..is gonna make them have a lot of possession than us and that is wat we dont need again at the nou camp…we really need to match them up…and i think that 4 our four men midfiled should be able to deal with that if we go by this line up…that midfiled looks more defensive and balance with strenght…we just need diaby and denilson to turn up and play a good game for us…we need to have the possesion of the ball..we must not look at them playing us… Read more »

@damstar you may well be right, but I don’t remember Wenger deviating from 4-3-3 all season.

@ an arse worth having,…i know arsene is a stubborn manager…cant change his policy easily… but the truth is since we have changed to the 4-3-3 formation, we have never beaten any of the big strong team with this formation..that is the fact…we cant beat chelsea,man u and barca both home and away but we beat them last season with our 4-4-2….wenger has to see this and think about it…the 4-3-3 only help us against the weak teams that is it…..he must see this on time and think about this before we play barca next week…..let us try the 4-4-2… Read more »

we still dont have enough strong and experienced players to play in the 4-3-3 formation against the big teams….and not until we do, wenger cant win us a trophy with the 4-3-3 formation… barca has enough good players for this formation but we dont… simple as that…if we try 4-4-2 against barca and we progress to the semi, then it means wenger must change back to the 4-4-2 again next season..he must rethink his policy…and if he still wanna stick with thesame formation next season, he must enter the market and get tall, srong and experienced players…

Barca match
almunia
sagna campbell verma clichy
Song
Nasri. Diaby
bendtner. Rosicky
Walcott

their defence is clearly slow. Bendtner is better on the right where he will win every header and open their defence with his strength

i left with 30mins to go too, unfortunately. They were all over us and it was embarrassing, if you like to see our team get raped then your not really as much a fan as we are. we want to see arsenal play well, and they clearly didn’t. so stop slamming us for leaving early.

@ usfan It doesn’t matter if they were all over us, a true fan stays till the end and will carry on supporting their team! How do you think the players feel when they’re out there trying as hard as they can to do something for you against the best team in world. Yes, we may have got a tad bit lucky at times, but it doesn’t excuse how much effort they put in when it mattered. I hate spoilt people like you, I know at least 100 people who would have killed or done anything to go and see… Read more »

@mike Totally agree. You said it a lot more eloquently then I would have done. If fans want to watch a team that wins at any cost then I’m sure ManU Chelsea as well as any team Mourinho manages would welcome their support.

Exactly, what more does he expect, Arsenal and Barcelona are the only two teams that play football properly, last night was the best football match I have ever seen in my entire life, it was pure entertainment and 100% football, and if he couldn’t see that then, like I said, he has his head right up there!

@mike i said unfortunately i left early, it was a great comeback by the arsenal. “a true fan stays till the end and will carry on supporting their team!” every week fans leave early, mostly because of the transport issue. you saying the tens of thousands of fans that clear the place before the final whistle arn’t “fans”? i love how some of you fan’s like to think your somehow better than the rest, and the others arn’t proper fans. I realise that there are different arsenal fans from all walks of life. I’m sure there are even some “fans”… Read more »

Yes, of course that yesterday’s game was one of the best this year, but unfortunately with serious consequencies for us….without Arshavin, Gallas & Cesc, three important players lost in just ONE MATCH!!!, surely our away game will leave us with more injured players, so, we will have an Arsenal Hospital, but no titles anyway… Which will be our starting team against Wolfs??? It was a nightmare yesterday, Barca was too much aggresive, they wanted a goal at first half, and they finally had got 2 goals that give them a great advantage…it’s no real problem for Barca being without Pique… Read more »

@ usfan I apologise for my manner, but I would have loved to be at that game despite the performance of the team because to see the stars that were on show and how good the game would have been would have been a once in the life time opportunity and when I see people leaving with still a 3rd of the game left to play, it just bugs me so much that I would of done anything to be at the game and then to have to watch people leaving early becasue they’re embarrased by the performance or to… Read more »

I understand your views on how you are a fan….
but your behaviour is a disgrace…
Im going to the Emirates on Saturday and have seen the lads many times this year travelling from Ireland… Lots of fans would give a leg to be at y/days match never mind a season ticket… Shameful.. Im sorry for your embarrassment.. Get over yourself….
