Gunners hoping for Cesc ‘miracle’

Arsene Wenger accepts it will take a “miracle” for Arsenal captain
Cesc Fabregas to be fit for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Hull.

The Spain midfielder missed the midweek Champions League
victory over Porto because of the hamstring problem which had seen
him hobble out of the win against Burnley.

Wenger will not take any risks ahead of the trip to the KC
Stadium for Saturday’s late kick-off.

“His chances of playing are 0.5% – that means unless a
miracle happens, he will not play. At the moment, Cesc is out of
Saturday’s game,” said Wenger.

“We have a little doubt about [Tomas] Rosicky (groin), but we
will check that tomorrow morning.

“Nobody else is back, but we will lose [Alex] Song, because
he is suspended.”

With William Gallas still sidelined because of a calf
problem, Wenger will be hoping veteran Sol Campbell can shrug off
cramp to face relegation-threatened Hull.

However, full-back Bacary Sagna is struggling with an ankle

“Campbell looks better than expected today. Sagna has an
ankle problem but we will assess that tomorrow,” said Wenger.

“We will see how it develops, who is available, who I can

“We know we have 48 hours to prepare for this game and it is
quite needed.”
