Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas admits his knee injury could've been a lot worse.
"The doctor told me I was lucky because my foot was in the air during the collision," Cesc, who has been ruled out for three-to-four months, told The Sun.
"If it had been on the ground I could have ruptured my anterior cruciate and had internal and external injuries. Anything could have happened.
"I have tried to take the positives out of the situation. Of course I don't want to be injured but it could have been a lot worse - it could have been nine months out.
"There will still be things to play for when I come back.
"I could be ready for the Champions League quarter-finals if we get through and hopefully we will still be in contention for the FA Cup and the Premier League.
"At the end of that there is also the Confederations Cup with Spain so there is a lot to look forward to.
"It's not a disaster. There are worse things that happen in life."
