Vermaelen injury blow for Gunners
The Belgium international lasted just 19 minutes of the defeat at
White Hart Lane before he had to be replaced. Gunners boss Arsene
Wenger told the Arsenal website: “Certainly it is a calf strain.
(He will be out for) two to three weeks.” With William Gallas
struggling with a calf injury it leaves the Gunners short at the
back, with veteran duo Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre the
central defensive pairing that finished the game against Spurs.
