Fabregas says shouldn't have played vs. Pompey

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas said he probably shouldn't have played in the club's victory against Portsmouth over the weekend in which he was forced off with a hamstring problem but hopes the injury will not keep him out for long.
The 22-year-old midfielder was ruled out of Wednesday night's Champions League qualifying match against Celtic and remains a doubt for Premier League match against United at Old Trafford.
"I had a problem with my left thigh, groin and hamstring _ it was all on my left leg," Fabregas said. "But now I have the injury to my right hamstring, probably because I was trying to compensate for the injuries on my left side. Perhaps I shouldn't have played on Saturday, and should have rested it. But hopefully it's nothing big."
Fabregas had a scan on his right hamstring earlier this week and manager Arsene Wenger said the scan results were "reassuring."
