Gunners win at a cost

Published Add your comment

Arsenal edged past Stoke 1-0 to move within a point of the top of the table but their victory was overshadowed by injuries to Theo Walcott and Cesc Fabregas.

Sebastien Squillaci's seventh-minute header gave Arsenal the victory but injuries to their key duo will be of more concern with the Carling Cup final and a Champions League match against Barcelona coming up.

Fabregas came off with what appeared to be a knee complaint in the first half while Walcott was carried off on a stretcher with an ankle injury after being flattened by a clumsy Dean Whitehead challenge.
