Cesc Fabregas and Manu Eboue both suffered minor injuries in the 5-0 drubbing of Aston Villa on Saturday, and both are a doubt for the trip to Turin.

In a brief statement after the game Wenger said,

‘The negative side of the game today is that we got two injuries that we wouldn’t want to have at the moment. One is Eboue with a groin problem, the second one is Fabregas with a foot problem. Both are a small 50/50 for Wednesday night. That means a 60/40 against. We’ll have a scan tomorrow because [Fabregas’] foot has blown up, that’s not the best sign. He got a kick, I think it was McCann. Eboue, who did his groin, played like [former Brazil international] Garrincha on the right side. He didn’t stop going forward.’

It would be a huge blow to lose both players as they have both come on leaps and bounds over the last few games.

Eboue would probably the biggest loss as we already have so many inury worries in defence.
