Eduardo da Silva has thanked Arsenal physio Gary Lewin for saving his foot.

The Gunners striker is facing nine months out of the game after a foul by Birmingham´s Martin Taylor last Saturday caused an open fracture of his lower leg and a dislocated ankle - but he knows the prognosis could have been much worse.

"The injury was so grave I could have lost my foot," he told the News of the World. "So I will always be grateful to Gary for what he did in lowering the risk to my leg. That was decisive. I do not remember too much about the blow."
