Denilson ruled out of Barnet match due to injury

Brazilian midfielder Denilson hasn’t been included in Arsenal’s 22-man squad to face Barnet tomorrow after suffering a reoccurence of the groin injury which dogged him towards the end of last season.

The 22-year-old, whose 2009/10 campaign was blighted with injuries, has been training separately from the rest of the squad ahead of Saturday’s pre-season fixture.

Tomorrow’s match against League 2 side Barnet could see new signings Marouane Chamakh and Laurent Koscielny make their respective debuts, while Eduardo is also included after Arsene Wenger rebuffed transfer speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal.

Goalkeepers: Almunia, Fabianski

Defenders: Djourou, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Nordtveit, Miquel, Gibbs, Traore

Midfielders: Barazite, Eastmond, Frimpong, Emmanuel-Thomas, Henderson, Lansbury, Rosicky, Wilshere, Nasri

Forwards: Chamakh, Eduardo, Walcott, Arshavin

…and the injuries start early this time round! I’m hedging my bets on Nasri or Diaby to be the next ones out.

This might force the profs hand, well lets hope so we need a strong DFM not this weak, slow, broken player.
Perhaps Lansbury will get his chance?

We need DM cover, maybe Gilberto or Flamini can come back on the cheap. Man City have about 100 of them. De Jong could add some needed steel !!!

I hope he’s out for the rest of the season, he’s useless.
By the way if this is an old injury, why was it not sorted during the break, and who’s responsible? Very unprofessional!

Good, hope it stays that way.

Wenger might get his wallet out and actually buy a dm that can do more than pass sideways.

@dan: Yeah I’m starting to get really worried that that’s our lot in transfer dealings, and he’s going to rely more on the youths this year. If that’s the case, then GOOD LUCK! We’ve ‘ad it.

I’m pretty certain Wenger will start with Eastmond in the holding midfield role, but I was thinking about it and actually Nordtveit has more first-team/top-division starts than him in that position. Its been so long since we’ve seen him in a Arsenal shirt, I kind of would like to him playing with the first group of what’ll probably be nearly 100% first-team players to start the match.

That being said, I’m pretty sure he’ll be in the second CB pairing with Miquel, although, Nordtveit probably has more first-team starts at RB than anyone else in the squad too.

Why is this useless man still here? I think he should be released on a free transfer.

[…] Tomorrow’s match at Anfield could see the Brazilian youngster make his first appearance of the season after not being involved in any of the pre-season fixtures due to a groin injury. […]
