Triple Injury Boost For Arsenal As Key Trio Return For Everton Clash
Arsenal are set to be handed a triple injury boost with Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny all expected to face Everton this weekend
Arsenal are set to be handed a triple injury boost with Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny all expected to face Everton this weekend, according to Football London.
Ramsey surprisingly missed our controversial defeat at Watford after returning with a tight hamstring following the international break with Wales and Arsene Wenger chose not to risk him on Saturday evening.
Our starting eleven was depleted further after Alexis Sanchez suffered a minor thigh problem while playing for Chile against Brazil last week and he too sat out the trip to Vicarage Road.
Laurent Koscielny did make his return to action at the weekend having recovered from an Achilles injury that kept him out in recent weeks but the defender limped off with a calf complaint in the 87th minute.
Thankfully the French international was only suffering from cramp and hadn’t aggravated his Achilles injury so Koscielny is set to be available for Sunday’s trip to Everton.
And Football London claim Ramsey and Sanchez will join Koscielny in being in contention for a place in Wenger’s starting eleven as the pair are expected to return to the squad at Goodison Park.
The triple boost will be a welcome one for the manager as Saturday’s defeat has left us sitting sixth in the Premier League table so we desperately need to get back to winning ways against Everton.
Calum Chambers could also be back in contention this weekend after recovering from a hip injury that he aggravated during the League Cup win over Doncaster last month, but I’m not sure he’ll make the squad.
Danny Welbeck is certain to miss out this weekend after picking up a hamstring injury against Watford while Shkodran Mustafi is also on the sidelines with a thigh problem so they join Santi Cazorla on the treatment table.
