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.
