Thierry Henry has picked up a calf injury in training and may be unavailability for the Manchester united encounter on Sunday, Mirror Football reports.
The following is the original report.
The Arsenal legend, 34, has picked up a calf injury in training and is struggling to be ready for Sunday's match.
It is a major blow for Henry, who is desperate to play in such showpiece
games during his two-month loan spell from New York Red Bulls.
Mikel Arteta, according to the same report, is still struggling to be fit for Sunday's encounter.
Midfielder Mikel Arteta is also struggling to be fit to face United, but defender Thomas Vermaelen is ready to return after a calf problem.
Arsenal have lost their last two Premiership games and cannot afford to lose their major players ahead of this all important encounter. A loss on Sunday will equal the team's woeful start to the season, and will surely have the fans baying more loudly for some blood, preferably Wenger's.
This season's injury problem must give cause for concern for every Arsenal fan. The entire backline of the team, for example, has almost been decimated by injury, contributing to the team's recent dip in form.
If Henry is unable to shake off this injury ahead of the weekend encounter, it will be a major blow to the team's confidence.
One can only hope that the figurative demons of injury will move somewhere else for a change and for the rest of the season.
