“Felt under the weather on Monday and then had to go to hospital in the middle of the night last night.”

He said he would have to rein in his celebrations for a while. but it hasn’t dampened his love for his team.

“After this I think I’m going to be taking it a bit easier for a while.

“Not sure the hernia was worth the 15 minutes of fame. If Arsenal win the league it will be!”
