Is this an injury crisis?

Are we getting our injury crisis in early? We're now without Ricardo Vaz Te, Guy Demel, Matt Taylor, Diarra and Jack Collison. The right-back position is the most worrying. Guy Demel was showing good form after an extended run even though we don't as yet have a song for Guy - though Elton John might oblige. James Tomkins has done a good job filling in, though is much more of a natural centre back. Joey O'Brien might be a better deputy against a speedy attack like Manchester City as he knows the position. Apart from Cole and Maiga our bench is mow looking pretty thin. We'll just have to hope the starting X1 put in a shift - and how about a first goal for Andy Carroll please?
