In preparation for Arsenal away clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday, Wenger has been talking to journalist where he gave an update on the team’s current injury situation. Wenger confirmed Mathieu Flamini who was greatly missed against Dortmund will be making a return back to the squad this Saturday against Palace. Doubtful to play tomorrow is English Jack Wilshere.
Wilshere was forced off against Dortmund due to a knock he received to his ankle during the match. Although Wilshere told his followers via his social media account on twitter that he is fine, Wenger thinks otherwise and wants the high rated midfielder to undergo further checks.
Wenger also revealed Mesut Ozil was not at his best against Dortmund as a result of an illness he is however now fully fit and will play against Palace unless Wenger decides to rest him.
On Mathieu Flamini :
“Flamini is available because he had no basic injury – it was just a precaution. Wilshere will be checked by the medical people.”
On Mesut Ozil’s poor performance against Dortmund :
“why he was not at his best”.
