Both Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie could be unavailable for the Liverpool opener as per Wenger because they are still struggling to be match fit. The duo are rejoining August 5th on the day of the official photo call. Fabregas will be PICTURED in Arsenal's new colours. Booyah! Carles Puyol and Barca.
Meanwhile, Cesc was spotted attending former Arsenal team mate, Julio Baptista's wedding to Silvia Nistal in Madrid. The Beast and Cesc became friends during the former's brief tenure as a Gunner and kept in touch. Good to see Cesc dressed sharp and having a life away from the field.
Here is the rub. Both RVP and Cesc missing such an important opener against Liverpool is not a good sign. Actually, it is a terrible sign. Hopefully, they get up to speed and are declared fit for that match. The Reds will be hungry to reclaim lost ground and they have had their transfer sagas in Torres and Gerrard. So getting off the ground with a good opening performance against them will be an enormous boost.
