Good News/Bad News on Cabaye & Ben Arfa Injuries
Ben Arfa of course made his comeback in the away leg in Moscow and while the reports afterwards were that he’d suffered a dead leg, the reality has proved somewhat more serious.
It’s expected Hatem will be back for pre-season training and this was Alan Pardew’s take on the news;
“It’s terrible news as Hatem gives us the X factor and he will be a big miss”.
On a brighter note the manager expects Yohan Cabaye to be available for Sunday’s match at Wigan.
I don’t think many of us thought that would be the case when the midfielder was forced off last night but a big relief.
