KO Fear For Fabregas

cesc-fabregas-arsenalCesc Fabregas could miss Arsenal’s crunch visit to Manchester United next Saturday evening with a hamstring injury.

There are fears that the Gunners skipper could be out for three weeks after being subbed at half-time in the 4-1 thrashing of Portsmouth.

Boss Arsene Wenger said Fabregas – who is unlikely to make Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier against Celtic – will have a fitness test today to assess the extent of the injury.

He said: “Cesc has a hamstring problem. He will be short for Wednesday certainly.

“If it’s a little pull he’ll be out for three weeks. If it’s just a tightness maybe he can get away for the Celtic game but after 48 hours we’ll have a better view.”

It will be a massive blow for the Gunners as the Spanish midfielder has been in top form this season.

He was a doubt before the 2-0 win at Celtic at Parkhead with the same hamstring niggle but played the whole game.

But the problem got worse in the Pompey clash and it seems the Spanish ace could now be out until September.
