Look at what happened when Wenger gambled with Cesc on Champions League. It went wrong terribly. Now he is out for two or more weeks and he could miss the Man Utd trip.
Lots of our player has returned back from injuries. Robin Van Persie,Bendtner, Walcott and others. Still Vermaelen, Fabregas, Diaby, Eboue are sidelined due to injury. Should they be hurried for their return and have chronic level injuries or be rested. Also what about Wilshere ?? I just have a feeling he is being over used and might have a future like Owen. We definitely don't want that, do we?
I have just words of inspiration for Chamakh. He has taken bruises, he has been battered, he has pain in his neck, his body aching with scratch marks and stiff muscles but still somehow manages to get a tough and rough goal as against Spuds and Aston Villa. Man with scarf has been superb. But for how long? He should not be overplayed else someday he is gonna come limping off the pitch.
So, what is the solution? Persie and Bendtner are back but out of form. Chamakh and Nasri are in terrific form but we couldn't risk them. Midfielders and strikers are the one who are most vulnerable to injuries. I don't mean that defence won't get injured but front line is the area where we are more vulnerable. So, we have now four fit strikers. Chamakh, Persie, Bendtner and Vela. Only Chamakh is inform. We have Arshavin, Walcott, Nasri, Song, Wilshere, Rosicky and Denilson in midfield with Fabregas, Eboue and Diaby injured. And we have fixture Wigan(Carling Cup), Fulham, Partizan(Champions League), Man Utd, Stoke, Chelsea and Wigan on December. Basic thing that we need to do now is keep our rated players fit for Man Utd and Chelsea clash while we should have at least a point to secure a position in knock out stage in champions league. Wenger surely will have a tough time deciding which player he should choose for these fixtures.
