Sagna's injury hard to take, Justin to the rescue!
Bacary Sagna has been ruled out of action for around 3-5 weeks after injuring his ankle against Chelsea at the weekend.
He opened the scoring in that game and his influence on the game was clear to see, as when he came off the balance of the team was affected, and the game completely turned around.
He has been superb for Arsenal this season, and has looked like he's been at the club for years with his assured consistant displays at right-back.
In my eyes he has been one of the best players at the club this season and to lose him at such a crucial stage of the season is hard to take.
He will be out until at least mid-April and will miss the crucial Champions League tie with Liverpool and the now even more massive clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Justin Hoyte will no doubt be called into the team and I hope that the youngster can fill the Frenchmans boots.
Justin has shown his loyalty to Arsenal and deserves the chance to stake a claim for first-team action. He never moans about not being selected and just gets on with the job, playing for the team he loves.
Good luck Justin!
Keep it Goonerish...........
