Diaby a doubt for Arsenal

ARSENAL midfielder Abou Diaby’s fitness is again a concern for the club after France manager Didier Deschamps revealed that he has suffered a new muscular injury.

Diaby’s career has been regularly undermined by a succession of injuries and the latest will keep him from today’s World Cup qualifier at home to Belarus and potentially from Arsenal’s upcoming fixtures.

“Diaby took a bad shot and he has muscular discomfort,” said Deschamps. “He is not free in his movements.”

The former Auxerre player has started all three of Arsenal’s Premier League games this season.
