Arsene Wenger has injury worries over Arshavin and Song

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has fresh injury worries over Andrey Arshavin and Alex Song ahead of next week's Champions League clash at FC Porto.

Striker Arshavin, 28, has a troublesome hamstring while midfielder Song has picked up a knee ligament problem.

"I hope (Song) will be available but it is not sure," Wenger told Arsenal TV. "We have to assess Arshavin too."

Midfielder Samir Nasri has recovered from a head injury while striker Eduardo's hamstring problem has healed.

Knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round by Stoke, Arsenal do not play this weekend, giving them more time to prepare for the Porto game.


Wenger is sure to be boosted by the return of Croatia forward Eduardo, who has spent the last fortnight on the sidelines.

And the Arsenal manager is certain Nasri will be able to figure against Porto as the injury which forced him to go off in the 1-0 win over Liverpool on Wednesday is not as bad as first feared.
