Arsenal boss Wenger admits he may have to hold back Cesc

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he may be forced to hold back Cesc Fabregas from playing tonight against Barcelona.

Wenger revealed the former Barca youth player did not want to miss out on such a big, and personally emotional, occasion.

"Cesc is desperate to play in every single game," said the Arsenal boss, "and who wouldn't want to play in a game like tomorrow?

"He always wants to play every day and I believe it is the mark of a great player that they want to do that and are happy when they do.

"He wanted to run off the injury on Saturday. I will know tomorrow whether I made a mistake or not in keeping him on the pitch."
