Boost for Arsenal as Vermaelen avoids leg break

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has not fractured his leg but is doubtful for Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United, the club have confirmed.

Vermaelen limped off in the first half of the draw at Aston Villa on Wednesday night and afterwards manager Arsène Wenger asid that he feared the centre-back might have broken a bone.

Scans on Thursday showed there was no break, but the leg injury could still sideline Vermaelen in the short term.

"There is no fracture in Thomas' leg but his injury still has to be assessed," Wenger told the club's official website. "There is still a good chance he will not play on Sunday.

"Eduardo has a small, small, small hamstring. He will be out for one week. He will not make Man United but he might make Chelsea.

"However Emmanuel Eboue and Alex Song have been in this morning. Eboue has been running outside. They are both in good shape. Tired but in good shape. Both of them are available for Sunday. Unfortunately Abou will not be back this weekend but he could be for Chelsea."
