Injuries are something to be taking in consideration in all sports but especially when you are thinking about having some sports betting action. Arsenal striker, Carlos Vela has missed the games against Chelsea and Liverpool in the past week and will probably miss the clash against Porto next Wednesday.
Vela is a fun striker to watch especially when he is front of the goal as he scores beautiful goals when he has the change to play; but he is suffering a knee injury in the last couple of weeks and hasn’t been able to cooperate in crucial games where his team needed a deep roster.
Next Wednesday Arsenal travel to Portugal to face Porto in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. Not only is Vela out for this game but also Alex Song, Croatian striker Eduardo and Russian forward Andrey Arshavin.
“So the questions marks will be about Arshavin and Song. We’ll know more in a few days. Arshavin has a scan today and Alex Song has come in for treatment. He is very sore today so we’ll have to see how he responds”, said Wenger.
The professor Arsene Wenger will not have at his disposal Johan Djourou and Robin Van Persie either in an Arsenal team that appears to be more of a nursing home co-ed team than a soccer squad.
Despite the injury jinx continues for the gunners they have managed to be third in the league just 5 points behind Manchester United and 6 from the Premier League current leader Chelsea.
Will all those injuries just imagine what would be the roll of Vela in the team if he was healthy, the real question for Arsenal is how far will they get in the UCL will that nursing home they called a team?
