Wenger: ‘Flamini Injury Short-Term, Could Return Against Man Utd’

By on November 1, 2013

Arsene Wenger has been conducting his pre-match press conference this morning ahead of the visit of Liverpool and he’s revealed some excellent news regarding the fitness of Mathieu Flamini.

The Frenchman was forced off against Crystal Palace last weekend with a groin injury and it was initially feared he could be out for up to a month.

However, speaking today the boss has confirmed the injury is only short-term and Flamini could be back to face Manchester United next weekend.

Of course it still means he’ll be missing against Liverpool on Saturday as well as Wednesday’s crucial Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund, but it would be a huge boost to have him back to face United.

I think we’re really going to miss Flamini’s tenacity tomorrow as with Suarez, Sturridge and Coutinho, Liverpool are a huge threat going forward and we could really have done with the 29-year-old’s defensive instincts in front of the back four.

How big a loss is Flamini? Will we cope without him against Liverpool?

    i think with out the flam we lack that bite in midfeild he is wot we’ve been missing and it aint no coincidence that we have struggled with out him. personaly i think that the boss should give vermhalin a go at the dm position hes defensivly minded being a center back hes gd at going 4wrd 2 and with kos and the bfg doing so well i think this would b a more of an oppertunity 2 get in the squad 2. if he is playing i think we can have a go at any 1 but im worried with out him no 1 breaks up the play like he does nicks the ball back high up the field like he does, i just hope that we can pull somethng out the bag and we turn up with our a game 2moro at this point in time id b happy with a draw any thing more is a bonus. come on u gunners let show the pl we mean business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
