Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas won’t be involved in the final Premier League game of the season against Fulham next Sunday, after boss Arsene Wenger confirmed that the Spaniard has suffered a setback with his thigh injury.
Fabregas wasn’t risked for Sunday’s defeat to Aston Villa while fellow midfielder Samir Nasri failed a late fitness test on his hamstring. The latter has a “little chance” to play, according to Wenger.
Other doubts for the clash at Craven Cottage include Johan Djourou and Abou Diaby, with the more likely to be involved in West London.
“Djourou has a little chance and Nasri has a very little chance,” said Wenger.
“We will see how he [Nasri] progresses but he could be out as well for France [who face Belarus on June 3]. We have to check. Samir’s injury is less [serious] than Fabregas.”
Manchester City could pip the Gunners into third place if they win at home to Stoke on Tuesday, giving Sunday’s game an even bigger significance than expected.
