Arsenal play Wolves tonight looking to extend their lead in third, and we have the latest injury news on Gervinho, Per Mertesacker and Kieran Gibbs.
Left back Gibbs was replaced by Andre Santos midway through the second half against Man City on Sunday and Arsene has confirmed the England full back is suffering from fatigue in his groin. Therefore he will miss out tonight with Santos ready to step in, but Gibbs’s injury is only considered short-term.
Wenger also confirmed Gervinho is suffering from a short-term concern but denied reports that Per Mertesacker had returned to training, insisting the defender is still in Germany continuing his rehabilitation. Here is what Wenger told Arsenal.com:
on the team news…
Gibbs is out with a fatigue of his groin, so Santos is back. Koscielny is of course suspended for two games and Gervinho is ruled out with an ankle problem. Squillaci and Park come in. The squad is quite easy to pick because all the players available are in.
Gibbs is short-term, it is more fatigue than an injury. Santos comes straight back.
He is short-term as well. He had a test today which was not completely satisfying but he is not far.
on reports Per Mertesacker had started training…
No, no, no, he is still in Germany for his rehab and he is starting his running but he is not back in training. He is fine though.
