Gallas to miss Stoke tie

Gallas to miss Stoke tie

William Gallas will be missing for Arsenal's key Premiership match against Stoke City on Saturday at 3pm. The French defender picked up a knock against Tottenham in midweek.

Arsene Wenger also has to do without Emmanuel Eboue, and will be hoping that the Gunners can reverse their poor form that saw them throw away a two goal lead in the last two minutes against Spurs in midweek.

"It looks like Gallas will be out and maybe Eboue too," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online. "We'll assess him tomorrow.

"It is a little recurrence of the hamstring for William and for Manu it is his knee. He is not running properly at the moment. He still has pain there."
