There is some injury news ahead of the Champions League clash between Arsenal and PSG you say? Well that will be more problems for the Gunners then right? Actually for one it is not, as of the two clubs fighting it out for control of group A it is the French champions that were handed problems on the injury front ahead of this European tie.
Arguably their most influential player Angel Di Maria was brought off before the end of their French Ligue 1 match against Nantes on Saturday after picking up a knock. That is not the only problem that PSG have for their trip to London either, as their injury list also includes Javier Pastore, Adrien Rabiot, Layvin Kurzawa and Alphonse Areola.
However, the last thing that Arsenal should do is to take this to mean that we will have an easy task on Wednesday. For one thing, the Evening Standard is reporting that Di Maria should be fit to face the Gunners and was only taken off as a precaution.
None of the other players on the list are really key players for the French team, apart from maybe Rabiot who has become a regular starter for them in central midfield. When you compare their problems to those facing Arsene Wenger, however, with important Gunners like Cazorla and Bellerin out of action, then it is the visitors rather than us who have been helped by injuries.
Will this count though, or do Arsenal still have enough to beat PSG and seal top spot and an easier ride in the knockout phase?
