arsenal news

Arsenal travel North to face Liverpool in the early Saturday kick off this weekend off the back of a mid week round of international fixtures which always leave club managers nervously awaiting their players return.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has given an injury update to Arsenal.com and the news is relatively positive. There are no fresh injury concerns from mid week and Wenger confirmed that Robin van Persie was planned to only play the first half of Holland’s game against England to protect the striker from burn out.

Therefore, RVP is available for the Liverpool game despite reports that he had aggravated a groin injury (update: Wenger is now quoted by ESPN as saying RVP is a doubt for the Liverpool game). Johan Djourou is on the road to recovery and could be fit to face Milan while Wenger took time to praise Andre Santos for his attitude during his recovery from injury, and revealed the Brazilian will be back training in two weeks.

The news is not so positive for midfielder Aaron Ramsey who has been ruled out for at least the next two games with an ankle injury, while Francis Coquelin is around four weeks away from fitness.

Here is the injury update Arsène Wenger’s gave on Arsenal.com:

on the situation after the internationals…

So far it is OK, we have no injuries from Wednesday night. Everybody looks alright.

on Van Persie coming off at half time…

It was planned by his manager because he knows we have a tough schedule. We are the only team in the world who plays Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday.

on Aaron Ramsey (ankle)…

It is too early for him, he has no chance for the weekend. He will be out for Milan as well.

on Johan Djourou (thigh)…

He is not far. He could be OK for Milan maybe.

on Andre Santos (ankle)…

He is doing good, he is not far as well – two weeks away from returning to the group. It is a bit ahead of time and he works with a fantastic attitude. He is unbelievably focused, motivated every day and he is a credit to himself. It is a joy to see how hard he works and sets himself targets. In two weeks we will assess how well he is doing in training.

on Francis Coquelin (hamstring)…

He is four weeks away.

    Let’s all pray Ramsy injury is more than 2 games.
    A lifetime injury is the perfect scenario for such a player!
    Ramsy is a useless prat.

      have you seriously just writ this?? He is one of the best young talents in the country and Wales captain. his performances hasn’t been sparkling but they haven’t even been bad, just average the same as the rest of the team. you should be hoping players like Ramsay find form not hope their career end what a stupid comment.
      bet you were saying the same about Rosicky a week ago!!!

    @Riz khan,
    Your comment is a total disgrace and you ought to be thoroughly ashamed of yourself. To wish ANYBODY in sport a lifetime injury is an appalling example of creeps who claim to be Arsenal supporters. They are nothing of the sort.

    Ramsy is better off playing the Arteta role and not as the attacking/creative midfielder. Rosicky is better suited for that job. Let Ramsey play the defensive box to box midfielder and you will see the best of him.

    Im happy finally people (Arsenal fans) are opening their eyes to the situations we have found ourselves in this season.
    over the last couple of seasons we have been well in the Title race until we pick up injuries that have hampered our effectiveness. This season we have had that luck from the off, not having our Rooney, Modric, Gerrard, Mata, Silva by this im mean of course Jack Wilshire all season as well as Diaby. we have also had horrendous injuries at full back position where for at least 6 games not having one to choose from playing 4 CB in the back 4 one being the mistake prone Johan Djurou. Arsenal fans that get on the managers back, complain at the team need to actually have a look at the situation.
    We ar in 4th in the PL the hardest league in the world ahead of team like Chelsea and Liverpool who have had no injuries problems to deal with this season. and gaining on Tottenham who i cant remember having a single selection problem this year. I for one am amazed that we are where we are for what we have had available this year. IN NOT SAYING WHEN THEY DONT PLAY WELL WE SHOULD LEAVE THEM im just saying the season in a whole.

    For Ramsey, I also agree that he is a foolish prat cuz most of our games lost,is due to the inability of this foolish Ramsey to pul out, he have to go on loan as well.
