Sitting in the bar yesterday at the end of the match when Capdevila went down in clear pain, I was in a bit of anguish myself - how could we handle more injuries? While the Arsenal fans in the bar (everyone else) began complaining, calling for him to get up, I knew there was good reason to be worried - Capdevila is not the type of player to writhe in fake agony.
But there is good news today, as he merely suffered a bruise. In fact, he should be good to go against Valladolid on Sunday. Villarreal picked up no other injuries during the match, so we will have, as much as possible, a full squad for the weekend's competition.
