Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has been ruled out of this weekends Premier League fixture away to Blackburn, with the 19-year-old only returning to England on Thursday afternoon.
Friday will be the Mexicans first training session since featuring for his country in important FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, and manager Arsene Wenger added Vela’s name to the list of absentees ahead of the trip to Lancashire in his pre-match press conference.
“At the moment I do not know about everybody because some players finished their game at 4am, for example Carlos Vela in Mexico,” he said.
“I count him out completely but overall it looks good.”
Carlos will now look to work in hard in training and put him in contention for the midweek Champions League clash against Dynamo Kyiv. The news will come as a disappointment for Vela who had excelled on his League debut at home to Newcastle two weeks ago.
