Arsenal Handed Quadruple Injury Boost Ahead Of Tottenham Clash
Arsenal have been handed a quadruple injury boost ahead of their huge clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. See more details here
Arsenal have finally received some positive injury news ahead of their huge clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, according to the Telegraph.
Arsene Wenger has once again had to deal with a mounting injury list this season with Laurent Koscielny becoming the tenth first team player to be ruled out of their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich in midweek after picking up a hip injury.
However, the Telegraph claim that the problem is a minor one and the French international could have played in Munich but the decision was made not to risk him ahead of the Spurs game.
Koscielny is therefore expected to be fit and available for selection on Sunday and the defender could be joined in the squad by Mikel Arteta and David Ospina with both now back in full training.
Arteta has been on the sidelines nursing an ankle in recent weeks but the newspaper suggests that he made a successful return to training on Wednesday, and while he’s lacking in match fitness, the Spaniard could still force his way back in to contention this weekend.
In a further boost for the Gunners, the Telegraph claim that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is set to return to training today – although he won’t be available against Tottenham – while Tomas Rosicky has also been given the green light to step up his injury return.
The Czech international has yet to play a single minute of football this season after undergoing knee surgery but saw a specialist in Munich and has been told he is now free to begin training next week.
It will be a long road back to full fitness so Rosicky still won’t be available for selection for several weeks but it’s another positive sign for Arsenal that they are slowly getting their squad back together.
Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin should be available again after the international break but Theo Walcott is facing another month on the sidelines with a calf injury. Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck won’t be back until the New Year.
