Adding to the long term injuries of Rosicky and Eduardo the club has announced that many more players are unfit to make the trip to Holland.

Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby haven’t yet recovered from injuries sustained in preseason and these have now been joined by Kolo Toure, Philippe Senderos and Cesc Fabregas. Both Senderos and Fabregas have damaged their hamstrings in the last 24 hours. Cesc is expected to miss at least the next two games while Kolo has damaged a muscle in his hip but is expected to be back by the weekend. Nasri is also expected to be back for the weekend game against West brom.

It looks as though Wenger is looking to the summers teenage recruit Aaron Ramsey to step in against FC Twente in the CL qualifier in Holland tomorrow evening.

With a number of players, including Sagna and Clichy, due to face a round of international friendlies on the 20th August just 4 days into the season, squad resources are going to be severely tested this month.
