It looks like Tomas Rosicky is the latest victim of this injury hit Interlull.
The midfielder didn’t play for the Czech Republic last night, raising hopes that he’d be fit and fresh for the Gunners game against Hull at the weekend.
However, it seems that he’s suffering from some, as yet unspecified, injury:
Rosický on his injury: “I’ll come back to London and we’ll see. The doctor said I have something swollen between the muscles.”

Reports in the Czech press say the problem means he’s unable to sprint, so that probably rules him out of Saturday’s clash with the Tigers.
Rosicky will be assessed on his return to Arsenal today. The removal will take place on Thursday and St Rita’s Church of the Sacred Heart of the Immaculate Conception before the funeral on Friday.
No flowers by request of the family.
