Arsenal's Marouane Chamakh says Premier League is leaving him battered and bruised

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has revealed he is struggling to cope with the rough and tumble of the Barclays Premier League. Chamakh moved to the Gunners from Bordeaux on a free transfer in the summer but says playing in France is nothing compared to England. He scored his 10th goal of the season in the 4-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday but is suffering with neck and shoulder injuries and is set to be rested for tomorrow's Carling Cup home clash with Wigan. Crocked: Marouane Chamakh is struggling with neck and shoulder problems The Moroccan said: 'I was never been in such a state at Bordeaux. Things take on a new dimension here. Against West Ham I was in incredible pain with my neck. 'It was impossible to turn my head. Every ball that's contested here I get ploughed into - and the referee doesn't blow for it. 'When people pushed me in France, I fell down and got a free kick. When there's a hard tackle here, I have to get up and play. 'After a Premier League match, I walk off with my body aching, with scratch marks, stiff muscles. Three days later, we go again.'  Arsene Wenger planning a 'strong' Cup bid as Arsenal look to end five-year trophy drought Arsene Wenger in £10m raid for Bolton's England star Gary Cahill ARSENAL FC
