ADDICT NEWSFLASH: Vermaelen could face Man Utd

By Graham McNorthbank

If you, like me, have been barely able to concentrate today while updating Arsenal.com to find out the true extent of Thomas Vermaelen's injury, then it's good news my fellow Addicts.

The news from the Home Of Football is that TV's leg is not broken as first feared and that he could be fit to face the Mancs this Sunday.

Arsene Wenger says there is a chance that the Verminator may have to miss the top of the table clash and if that's true, then it's a shame.

But the bottom line is that he won't be out long term meaning we won't have to rely on Sol Campbell having to remain fit for the rest of the season - or for that matter Mikael Silvestre forging a relationship with William Gallas in the centre of defense.

Let's now hope that Alex Song will be passed fit for the weekend game too so that we can field our best possible side for the visit of the reigning league champions.
