Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has to sort out a lot of injuries after Wednesday’s Champions league encounter against Barcelona at Emirates Stadium. With the likes of Arshavin as well as William Gallas out for at least three weeks also Arsenal leader Cesc Fabregas sidelined for the remainder of the season, Carlos Vela may get his chance for some match time. Furthermore the French man could decide to give also a rest to Nicklas Bendtner.
Vela was not named in the 18-man squad by the Manager for the Barcelona clash on Wednesday, so that he could follow in the stands a 2:2 draw in the end. The Gunners were really dead after two goals by Swedish International Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but English teenager Theo Walcott brought the hope back with a very good goal. Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas found then the equaliser, after getting kicked by Barcelona Defender Carles Puyol inside the 18 yard box, so that the Spaniard could level the Gunners from the spot.
Is that now the time for the young Mexican to shine for the Gunners? There is a big chance that the 21 years old gets a Premier league start on Saturday, when Arsene Wenger’s side take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the afternoon.

A very complicated situation for the 21 years old Mexican has continued as he was once again in the stands at Emirates, as his teammates could secure a tough win over West Ham United in the Barclays Premiership.
I don’t really know what is in mind of Wenger, but the way he is treating Carlos Vela is really terrible. To leave him once again out of the 18-man Squad is very disappointing, because last week the Arsenal Manager has admitted with his latest injury update on Arsenal’s official site that Carlos will be back along Cesc Fabregas etc.
it is very tough to understand why Wenger is doing that, as you could see that Carlos has substituted himself in Mexico’s encounter with New Zealand weeks ago to secure his chance to play for Arsenal Football Club. With the time running against Carlos for a World Cup spot in the Mexico roster, there are now seriously doubts that he will make the Mexican Squad and of course Wenger would be then the guilty man for a lot of Vela and Mexico supporters.
He cannot really afford to wait with Carlos until the next season, because that is unacceptable for Carlos chances to make the Mexico Squad for the World Cup and sorry Mr. Wenger that is the most important thing for a football player to play for your native on a big competition like that!!
