Arsenal Injury Latest: Three Return But Two Still Doubful
Arsenal have received a triple injury boost ahead of this weekend’s north London derby against Tottenham at the Emirates, with Wojciech Szczesny, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all fit for the match, according to the Telegraph.
The Gunners No.1 is set to be recalled after missing the last two months with an ankle injury picked up during a 6-1 thrashing of Southampton. The Polish stopper has trained well for over a week and is expected to come in for Vito Mannone this weekend.
The Italian has performed well at times during Szczesny’s absence, but came under fire for his part in Arsenal’s disappointing 3-3 draw with Fulham last weekend and is set to return to the bench.
Walcott and Chamberlain are also in line to feature after returning to training after being forced out of England’s friendly with Sweden on Wednesday. Chamberlain hasn’t started a game in over a month due to a hip complaint while Walcott was forced off against Fulham last Saturday, but both are back in full training and are expected to be available for selection against Spurs.
However, left back Kieran Gibbs and midfielder Tomas Rosicky are set to miss out once again. Gibbs has returned to light training but Arsene Wenger is being cautious with the injury-prone defender and is expected to continue with Thomas Vermaelen at left back on Saturday to give Gibbs more time to fully recover.
Rosicky hasn’t played this season due to an achilies injury sustained at the Euro’s in the summer and has only just returned to light training.
