Arsenal's Eduardo Set For Return Against Portsmouth

Croatian International striker Eduardo is set for a return to action for Arsenal next month, with a reserve game against Portsmouth on December 16th the likely date for the Brazilian-born forward’s comeback.

25-year-old Eduardo suffered a horrific career threatening injury in the Premier League clash with Birmingham City in February after a late challenge by Martin Taylor fractured the striker’s leg and dislocated his ankle.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had hoped that Eduardo could feature for the North London club in a reserve match with rivals Tottenham Hotspur two weeks earlier, but that fixture has been rearranged due to Arsenal’s Carling Cup quarter-final with Burnley being played on December 2nd.

Eduardo has just made his breakthrough at the Emirates Stadium last season in the Premier League when the injury happened and will be keen to resume his career in the Premiership after already having to spend 9 months on the sidelines at the Gunners.
