Rodrigo Palacio: Suffered thigh injury

The Argentinian scored twice in Inter's 2-0 Serie A victory at Sampdoria on Wednesday night to bring his personal tally up to 18 goals, meaning his absence for the season run-in could prove crucial to Inter's chances of securing Champions League football for next season.

A statement published on Inter's official website read: "Rodrigo Palacio has undergone medical examinations which have revealed a muscular problem to the back of his left thigh."

Club doctors will conduct further tests on the former Genoa player this evening to confirm the extent of the injury and establish a likely prognosis for his recovery.

The 31-year-old joins countryman Diego Milito, who will miss the rest of the season with a leg injury, on the sidelines, leaving Tommaso Rocchi and Antonio Cassano as the club's only fit senior strikers.

Inter are currently fifth in the Serie A table and seven points shy of third-placed AC Milan ahead of Sunday's meeting with Atalanta at the San Siro, with games against Roma, Napoli and Lazio forming part of the eight-game run-in.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
