'Cesc Fàbregas could be fit for World Cup'

Arsenal physio Colin Lewin has given a positive update on crocked skipper Cesc Fàbregas and expects him to be fit in time to play for Spain at the World Cup.

The 22-year-old mifielder suffered a hairline fracture to his right fibula in the 2-2 draw with Barcelona at the Emirates last month and has since been ruled out for the rest of the campaign.

"Cesc is doing well" Lewin told the club's official website.

"He is likely to be out for the rest of the season with a hairline crack of his fibula. If everything goes well he will comfortably make the World Cup and we will be constantly monitoring him."

Lewin has also denied suggestions that manager Arsène Wenger played Fàbregas whilst he was injured.

He added: "The injury was certainly as a result of the tackle by Carles Puyol at the end of the Barcelona game.

"There were some ill-informed media reports that the fracture was sustained before the Barcelona game and those reports, put simply, were untrue.

"He suffered heavy bruising in the Birmingham City game but to suggest that someone can run around for 85 minutes against Barcelona with a fractured fibula is just farcical."
