Eduardo injury won't rush Van Persie back

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has no intention of rushing Robin van Persie back into action, despite the loss of Eduardo da Silva. Croatia striker Eduardo is out for nine months after breaking his leg and suffering a dislocated ankle against Birmingham last weekend. However, the Gunners boss insists he will not look to push Dutchman Van Persie - who has seen his own campaign blighted by injury - before he is ready. The 24-year-old striker started the campaign in fine form before being sidelined by knee and muscular problems. He returned for the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final against Tottenham on January 9 but was substituted at half-time and has not played since. He will not feature against Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium but there remains the possibility he could be included in the squad for next week's Champions League trip to AC Milan. Wenger told Arsenal TV Online: 'We will not rush Robin van Persie back, but the news is quite good. 'It is difficult to say, we go step by step, but he should come back into normal training very, very quickly now. 'Maybe I am being a little over-cautious in my statements, but I do not want to put any special pressure on him.'
