John Carew To Miss Out On Arsenal Trip?

Looks like Big John Carew is in danger of missing a second game in a row as he is struggling for fitness ahead of our weekend trip to the Emirates.

On the plus side Martin O'Neill has hinted that both Stiliyan Petrov and Luke Young could be back for the game v Arsenal.

MON explained on the official site that both Petrov and Luke are making 'decent progress' and are back in training so he'll be able to asses if they are able to return for Saturday's game.

However on Carew he said 'John is really struggling at the moment. The discomfort seems to have moved from his back to the front thigh area. He is in discomfort. We will see. He had scans yesterday that have come up pretty decently. He is going for tests now with the specialist. We will see accordingly.'

One up front to start then or James Milner pushed forward alongside Gabby?

Discomfort in his front thigh area? That would be his lap when he sits down. Wonder what could possibly have caused that?? LOL Hope he is fit for Saturday

Sad thing is we will play the long ball upto Gabby and Milner and they wont know what to do with it, maybe Harewood should start?

Going to be a big miss... when things get tough he would be a hell of an asset up front.

So frustrating. He seems to be so injury prone, and we can never really count on his availability.

I like JC, rate him highly, but he just doesn't seem capable of putting a decent run of games together. This injury is a strange one.
