What can go wrong will go wrong!
Is it a curse or is it something else? I won't go into that debate for now. But to have two players go off during the game with injuries is too much to accept. The same thing happened at Sheffield Wednesday remember?
The most important game is the next game they say. But not on this occasion for sure. Because now Wenger's team selection for next Tuesday will probably determine Arsenal's fate for the rest of the Premier League season.
If the best available 11 are selected for Tuesday then Wenger will be taking a hell of a chance. He will be risking further injury and fatigue for his players. His main aim should be to rest key players and keep them fresh for the next League game.
And first on the list of non starters should be Flamini. If he does play and gets injured then Wenger might as well resign for he will have made a major error in risking the only fit and available defensive midfielder left in the club.
In the same vein the 'returning players' such as The Ox and Ramsey should also be left out altogether so as to give them another week of recovery.
Sanchez really needs a rest and since we don't have any other fit forward then Giroud should also be protected but he will probably have to start.
What I am really saying is lets sacrifice the Champions League.
