Arsenal Without Two Key Players For Carling Final

Arsenal have revealed that they will be without two key players for the Carling Cup final clash with Birmingham City on Sunday.

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will miss the game with a hamstring injury picked up in the midweek tussle against Stoke City.

The Spanish midfielder limped off the field early in the 1-0 win and manager Arsene Wenger said on the club`s official website www.arsenal.com: 'It is a very small injury but certainly Cesc will be out for Sunday. For how long (beyond that) I don't know but for Sunday he will be short.

'He is (disappointed). We all feel sorry and sad for him. The only way we help him now is to win the Carling Cup as he contributed a lot in this competition.'


England winger Theo Walcott will also miss the final after picking up an ankle injury in the same game on Wednesday night, he had to be taken off on a stretcher.

'He has a classic ankle sprain,' added Wenger.

'We don't think there is any more damage to it. But it is still a sprain. We are sad for him too. He is out for Sunday and maybe one or two more weeks.'
