Yohan Cabaye, the 27 year-old Frenchman, experienced some shooting pains in his groin on Thursday night against Anzhi Makhachkala, and as a precaution he came off after 37 minutes, and Jonas Gutierrez substituted for the central midfielder, and played quite well.
Yohan Cabaye – will start tomorrow?
And it seems because of Yohan being sensible and not risking things on Thursday, the French International should be OK for tomorrow’s important game at Wigan.
Cabaye had a double surgery on his groin in late November, and that seems to have done the trick, but Yohan still has to be careful of it- just in case.
This is what Yohan told the French Daily L’Equipe today:
“This is the adductor, but not the same place.” “I felt some shooting pain.” “We played a lot of matches recently and this may be a reason.” “Before the meeting with Anzhi I felt fine. and I do not think it is too serious.”
Yohan has 25 appearances this season to go with the 38 appearances he made last season, and he has 11 goals, with six goals this season.
We hope Yohan is OK for tomorrow’s game, because we need his generalship and an eye for a goal tomorrow afternoon, when we’ll be without his French team-mate Ben Arfa – who will be out for the rest of the season with his groin injury.
Let’s hope Yohan can start tomorrow.
