Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas hopes to have recovered from his hamstring injury in time to face Blackburn Rovers after the international break.

The 23-year-old Spaniard has been suffering from a recurring hamstring problem and has not played since Arsenal’s 4-3 aggregate defeat by Barcelona two weeks ago.

abregas, who returned to training on Monday, is aiming to be fit in time for Rovers’ visit to Emirates Stadium on 2 April.

“My injury is getting better,” he said via TwitCam on Wednesday. “It’s been a shame but I started running on Monday and everything is getting better.

“I needed my time, because it’s been a weird season for me with injuries and I just wanted to make it right, and I want to come back stronger than ever and hopefully fitter than ever so it won’t happen again.”

The Gunners skipper added: “Hopefully you will see me play again against Blackburn if I am fit.”
