Sky report that Arshavin will miss City and Liege

46 comments September 10th, 2009

Sky Sports News are reporting that Andrey Arshavin will miss the crucial games with Manchester City and Standard Liege after playing ninety minutes for Wales on Wednesday.

If these reports are confirmed, Arsene Wenger is sure to be furious: Arshavin was a serious doubt for the Russians, and whilst he completed ninety minutes (by all accounts playing very well) in Cardiff it seems his groin injury didn’t hold up as hoped.

It’s a real blow, particularly ahead of the City game – after defeat at United last week, a good result against their neighbours is essential to confidence.

We wait to see what condition over internationals are in. The good news is that Tomas Rosicky last night played his first competetive football match in some twenty-odd months.  Whilst Arshavin’s injury will prompt calls for him to be included in the side to face City, I don’t expect him to be starting games at club level for some time.

At least Cesc Fabregas is back in action – the skipper played and scored for Spain last night in a victory that secured their World Cup Qualification.

I was at Wembley last night to see England thrash Croatia, and was absolutely delighted for Eduardo, who netted a consolation in front of 90,000 fans who spent the entire game haranguing him as a cheat.  Whilst he’ll have been gutted by the result, he’s started off on the right foot by responding in the only way his language skills will permit: with goals.

Nicklas Bendtner was also on the scoresheet for Denmark which makes it two in his last two internationals for him.  Now all he needs is a Premier League goal and his season is off to a flyer.

Saturday would be a great place to start.
