Wesley woe for Aston Villa

Aston villa look set for a major blow after reports in Belgium suggested Wesley will miss the remainder of the campaign with a serious knee injury.

Villa, who are odds-on and a best-priced 10-11 to be relegated this season, will need to enter the transfer market should Wesley’s  injury be as bad as feared.

The Brazilian has scored five Premier League goals this season, although his strike at Burnley on Wednesday was his first in the Premier League since October 5.

Michy Batshuayi has been linked with Villa and is evens with Sky Bet to swap Chelsea for Dean Smith’s side.

Arsenal will have to do without Calum Chambers for at least six months and possibly as long as nine months after he suffered an ACL injury in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.

“We’re going to try to be in the market to see options that can strengthen the team,” said Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.

“We have some bad injuries, like Calum That’s obviously going to change our plans at the back.”
