SOCCER-ENGLAND-SWANSEA:Swansea's Hernandez likely to miss Arsenal clash

REUTERS - Swansea City winger Pablo Hernandez is likely to miss Saturday's Premier League clash with Arsenal, manager Michael Laudrup said on Friday.

Along with Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer, Hernandez was a constant threat in their 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday, but the Spaniard limped off with 15 minutes remaining due to a thigh injury.

"These injuries happen from time to time with the amount of games and it's part of football," Laudrup told the club's website (

"We have to accept it and that's why we have a squad of players."

Swansea, who are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, are eighth in the table with 20 points, one below Arsenal.
