As well as the news that William Gallas may miss the rest of the season with a calf injury, there are serious fears that Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas broke his right leg in last night’s thriller against Barcelona. Who says so? Cesc himself.

“I fear the worst, which is that I have broken something,” Fabregas said after the match.

“It is the fibula. I think I put my leg between [Carles] Puyol’s when I was fouled (for the penalty that Cesc then converted to make it 2-2), and kicked it.”

If this is true, not only will Cesc’s domestic season be over – a huge blow to Arsenal’s bid for silverware – but he could also be a doubt for the World Cup this summer.

After such a long and gruelling campaign, no wonder we’re suddenly seeing a glut of high-profile injuries – Rooney, Gosling, Fabregas, Gallas, Arshavin etc.

Gooners and Spain fans must hope Cesc’s self-diagnosis skills aren’t a patch on his football skills, eh.
