Fabregas misses training

Captain Arsenal won't be participating in Tomorrow's epic showdown in
classy Emirates.

The 22-year-old Spaniard's recurrent hamstring injury which forced him
out of action for three weeks after his brilliant cameo
that turned things around for the Gunners at the Emirates during the
closing stages of December last year.
The eccentric playmaker was missing in action at Arsenal's training
ground today and has gone for further tests on his nagging injury.

With Porto's Valera, Hulk, Raul and Falcao. All roaring to prove they
weren't play-acting at the Estadio do Dragao. Our skipper would've
provided the much needed inspiration. But that not withstanding we've
got a team that believes in its capability to rise to the occasion.
Hopefully the Gunners will raise their game Tomorrow to ensure Falcao
and Hansson are put to shame.

In the mean time, Samir Nasri has been given the go ahead by the Boss to dictate proceedings Tomorrow and he has the benefit of playing in a more favourable central position.

"Wenger said: "He is very versatile. You ask any player and they love to play in the middle but he has the pace to play on the flanks.
He can play defensive midfield, attacking midfield and on the flanks. We have a few players like that and I love that.
"He has adapted very quickly. He's a very intelligent boy, a quiet boy.
He analyses what is happening on the pitch very quickly. He has good technical potential. He is the same as Cesc, 22-years-old so very young."
