Arsenal go into tomorrow’s match against Wolves with almost half a team injured.
Five of the players who drew with Barcelona on Wednesday will be missing. Cesc Fabregas has been ruled out for the season, while William Gallas and Andrey Arshavin both have calf strains.
Coming off the back of Wednesday’s 2-2 thriller, Gael Clichy and Denilson are also doubts ahead of Saturday’s match.
“At the moment, we are like an army who have come back from a big battle,” he said. “We have some bruises but we need to recover and then go to the next battle. Who will be available for the next one? I have to wait 24 hours more.
“William had a recurrence of his calf strain. That is at least three weeks. The next one is Arshavin – calf strain, three weeks.
“Gael Clichy is struggling with a back problem. He might need a breather as well. I don’t know yet, we will assess that tomorrow. Denilson has a groin problem, we will assess that too.
“The first three are out, Clichy and Denilson are ‘possibles’ to play at the weekend.”
