Fabregas out for 10 days. Step in Rosicky?

By Aries

It looks like bad news for Arsenal and for Fabregas but not as bad as feared. Fabregas came off after 56 minutes during the defeat at Sevilla on Tuesday night with a hamstring strain.

Fabregas said: “I came off because I did not want to take any more risks when we had qualified.

Arsene Wenger said: "It is a hamstring injury. We'll know more on Thursday morning."

Initial fears were that he could miss the next three games against Aston Villa, Newcastle and Middlesbrough

The Mirror however is reporting that Cesc Fabregas is out for only 10 days. He will miss the next two Premier League games at Aston Villa and Newcastle.

Fabregas’s absence comes at the beginning of a testing time for the Gunners as they embark on a run of away fixtures with a game on average every four days starting with rampant Aston Villa on Saturday. They thrashed Blackburn 4-0 at Ewood Park last night.

Arsenal’s fixture list includes an away game four days later on Wednesday at Newcastle and the Sunday after that Middlesbrough away.

This is followed by Steaua home the Wednesday after and then on Sunday Ashley Cole’s return with Chelsea.

And it doesn’t stop there. Tottenham visit the Emirates a week later and there’s an away Carling Cup game at Blackburn on the Tuesday night before the Tottenham game.

This will be an interesting test for Arsenal to see how the team copes with the absence of its main playmaker and also one of its top goalscorers.

It was obvious during the Wigan game that there was not enough creativenesses coming from the midfield and it wasn’t until Rosicky was moved to that position that Arsenal became more inventive.

Diarra not creative enough, Flam will do the Def Mid job. Ade will be back and its too early for RVP. After Seville Nik has to start, him and Ade would be a right handful for any defence. No way Gilberto should play for us until he gets his head right, he looked disinterested on Tuesday, and his passing was awful.

Agree about Gilberto from the last comment. Its a real shame as he has been terrific for us in his time at Arsenal. I'd proberly play Denilson in the centre with Flamini/Diarra thats a good balance. Bendtner deserves a start after the way he performed the other night, he played well. We have alot of options without Cesc and enough quality to cover for some games.
