Some sad news buried in the team news ahead of tomorrow’s game.
Young Robert Milsom, who got to play a few first-team minutes at Old Trafford the other week and has looked close to breaking into the first team of late, is out for the rest of the season after injuring his cruciate ligament.
Milsom, a graduate of the Fulham Academy, has looked impressive in the reserves this season and we can only hope that he recovers to fulfil his undoubted potential.
RTE also reckon that AJ will be fit to lead the line, which is excellent news.
UPDATE: So do the Daily Mail.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Roy talking about Robert Milsom in his Arsenal preview video on the offal.
We lost a good player on Wednesday night … a really unfortunate injury to Robert Milsom. He has been unfortunate with injuries. He was playing very well, he was really making exceptional progress towards a place in the first team, made his debut against Manchester United. It was a cruel blow. A cruel blow, first and foremost for him, but also for us as a club to lose him and really we can’t afford to lose that many more because we have got a very small squad of players.
