Fabio Quagliarella: Out for around three weeks

The 30-year-old suffered the injury to his right thigh during training with Juve on Tuesday and will miss what could be three crucial weeks for the reigning Italian champions.

A statement published on the Serie A club's official website read: "Fabio Quagliarella became the victim of an injury (on Tuesday).

"The player underwent examinations (on Wednesday morning) which revealed a first-grade lesion to the long adductor in his right thigh. The prognosis is 20 days."

Quagliarella, who has scored three goals this season, will definitely miss Sunday's trip to Fiorentina and next Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Real Madrid.

Subsequent league games against Genoa, Catania and Parma should also elude the Neapolitan forward but Real's visit to Turin on November 5 presents an opportunity for a comeback.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
