Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas limped out of last night’s game against Stoke with a slight hamstring strain, but vowed to do everything in his power to lead the team out at Wembley on Sunday.
Arsenal lost both captain Fabregas and England winger Theo Walcott, who turned an ankle after a bad tackle from Dean Whitehead.
Wenger confirmed that Walcott would definitely miss Sundays Carling Cup final against Birmingham, but Fabregas, who withdrawn after only 15 minutes vowed to get fit again.
Arsenal have not won a trophy since 2005 and will hope the final represents their first success in over 5 years. Fabregas has not captained Arsenal to a final yet, so is desperate to lead out his team in a big game.
Speaking on his twitter feed, the 23 year-old World Cup winner admitted he was unsure if he would make the final, but vowed not to sleep to get there.
“I dont know if I’ll make Sunday or not, but all I know is that from this moment to Sunday I won’t sleep if it’s necessary,” he said.
“I’ve waited too long to captain a final for Arsenal and I won’t give up till the last second.”
