News broke early on Thursday that Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby had suffered yet another injury with his latest setback – a hamstring tear – expected to rule out the French man for up to three months.
However within hours the club made an official statement confirming the player is NOT injured and trained as normal with the first team squad that morning. Injuries have blighted the career of Diaby with over 40 separate reported problems stretching back to 2005 - the midfielder is in the final year of his current contract - and another significant issue at this point would finally extinguish any hopes of an extension. With only 10 starts since 2011 – an undoubted talent – Diaby has never been allowed to fulfil his potential with many citing the Dan Smith tackle back in 2006 at Sunderland – fractured & dislocated ankle – as being the cause ALL of his subsequent problems.

Although there's been no official word from the club the player was pictured training during an open session with his movement suggesting the problem may only be minor.
