Fabregas out for a fortnight

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas and midfielder Emmanuel Eboue picked up injuries in their Champions League match against Braga.


Fabregas,who injured his hamstring, will be out for two weeks while Eboue damaged his knee ligaments and will spend four weeks on the sidelines.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger told Arsenal TV Online:
"Fabregas will be assessed. After that we can tell how long he will be out, but I count two weeks."
"Eboue has a medial knee ligament strain. I think it will be four weeks."
"It’s disappointing because I had a hesitation to play him but I took the gamble and it backfired on us."
He later added: "It is a big blow because it will question how cautious we have to be in the future with him.
"Cesc has played 50 games a year since a young age. We may have to be more cautious with him, especially in the next two months."
