Fabregas to miss Porto game

Cesc Fábregas will miss Arsenal’s crucial Champions League match with Porto tomorrow due to a hamstring problem.

The Spanish midfielder hobbled off during The Gunners’ 3-1 win over Burnley at the weekend after tweaking the hamstring which kept him on the sidelines at the start of the year.

Despite the importance of tomorrow night’s game, Arsenal need to overturn a 2-1 deficit, Arsene Wenger made it clear that he wouldn’t risk Fábregas: 'We cannot even take a gamble, so he is not available.'

On a brighter note for Arsenal fans Sol Campbell took part in training today after recovering from a groin injury and should be available for the last-16 second leg showdown.
