Van Persie injury blow for Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger received a hammer blow to the club’s title chances this morning with the news that striker Robin van Persie has been ruled out until mid-October with an ankle injury.

The Holland international picked up the injury during the Gunners’ 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers on 28 August, however, it was originally thought that he would be back in action after the current international break.

Thankfully for Arsenal fans it wasn’t all bad news with French midfielder Samir Nasri expected to return to full training in the next few days.

The 23-year-old suffered a meniscal injury during Arsenal’s opening game of the Premier League season against Liverpool but has made a quick recovery.
