Wenger forced to call on Diaby as Arsenal injury crisis continues

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will have no choice but to call on midfielder Abou Diaby for the final few games of the Premier League season, the London Evening Standard has reported, despite on-going concerns over the France international’s fitness.



Diaby has made just four appearances this season, after injuries left the 25-year-old desperately struggling for fitness. Diaby replaced the ill Tomas Rosicky against Chelsea last weekend but prior to that, the midfielder had to be substituted against Liverpool having only entered the action as a substitute himself.


The Standard notes, however, that the season-ending injury to Mikel Arteta has brought Diaby back into contention as Wenger runs out of midfield options. Jack Wilshere has missed the entire season, Rosicky is battling illness and, the newspaper adds, Aaron Ramsey is feeling the effects of a first full season fit after breaking his leg.


Wenger said: “I hope [Diaby] can play an important role in midfield but I am a bit cautious because he only played 25 minutes [against Chelsea]. But in the last three games I hope he can help us.” Diaby has thus far made 164 Arsenal appearances since moving to North London from Auxerre in 2006.
