Wenger: "I have considered the possibility of ruling out Cesc"

Arsene Wenger has thrown his weight behind his captain and has
deliberately refused to reveal whether the Spain international will
play tonight against his boy-hood club.

Fabregas missed training because of a knee injury he sustained at St.
Andrews during the Gunners Barclays Premier League match with
Birmingham last week.

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old is recieving intensive treatment on the injured knee,
and Wenger insists he won't risk the inspirational captain, except, if
'if is good'.
Wenger's squad has been boosted with the return of William Gallas. The
defender has being missing in action for more than a month and the boss is glad to have him back, Wenger
also, will be counting on the effectiveness of his midfield/attacking
trio of Abou Diaby, Arshavin and Samir Nasri to deliver the overdue
goods later today.

Le Professeur said: "If Cesc is fit I'll play him. But I cannot give
you an answer today (yesterday), the medical staff tell me there is
still chance he will be available. But that will be decided in the
warm up tomorrow night (today). That tells you how late we will leave
it. He is desperate to play but he is desperate to play in every game.
I have put 19 players in the squad, and that means I have considered
the possibility of ruling him out completely," the gaffer maintained.
