Thomas Hitzlsperger has picked up a thigh injury, and is now doubtful for his team's season opener. The 28-year-old was injured during Germany's 2-2 draw with Denmark yesterday, and had to be withdrawn after 66 minutes. "I hope it is not that bad because I really want to play at the start of the season," he told reporters. He will undergo medical tests later today, but remains in a fitness race ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa.
