Shawcross, who has been attacked by Arsene Wenger on numerous occasions, and whose tackle broke the leg of Aaron Ramsey, says injuries are simply part of the game.
It was a tackle from Henry which broke Bobby Zamora's leg and De Jong's latest wild challenge caused a double leg break for Hatem Ben Arfa, but Shawcross refuses to blame his fellow professionals.
