Vermaelen ruled out of Chelsea game, Cesc has “a little chance”
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told reporters after the 3-1 win over Partizan Belgrade that Thomas Vermaelen will not be fit for Sunday’s trip to Chelsea, while captain Cesc Fabregas has a “little chance.”
The Gunners duo weren’t expected to be involved in Sunday’s game, although Fabregas will have a late fitness test on his injured hamstring before the clash at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal’s current injury list:
Manuel Almunia, Thomas Vermaelen, Cesc Fabregas, Nicklas Bendtner, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Robin van Persie, Emmanuel Frimpong, Abou Diaby (slight doubt for Sunday.)
