As the Gunners prepare to file out against Man City this Saturday, we want to take a look at latest team news and injury update on some of our players.
The boss yesterday confirmed that Koscielny who got injured in the match against Chelsea last weekend will not have any part in Saturday’s match.
Koscielny who joins Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, and Mesut Ozil on the treatment table carries a calf injury that may sideline him for a couple of weeks more.
“Compared to Tuesday night, we have no new injuries and no-one coming back as well.”
“Monreal should be the first one back in training because he is just starting to run in the next few days. After him, Ramsey is progressing well but we need to be patient for a few more weeks,” the boss added on the club’s official website.
On Ramsey, the boss had this to say:
“After him, Ramsey is progressing well but we need to be patient for a few more weeks.”
The Gunners have been massively hit by series of injuries to key players this season, and now see their bid to win the league under serious threat.
The match against City tomorrow is a must-win for the Gunners if they are to stand any chance of having a shot at the league this season. Though, hopes of winning the league this season looks all but gone; the club could still do the impossible especially as Man City and Liverpool are still to battle against each other.
Wenger had in a recent interview predicted a close finish to the league. The boss told Arsenal’s official site that he expects some twists as the league draws towards a conclusion with only a couple of matches left to play.
“Everybody speaks about Everton coming back on us [to challenge for fourth place]. Why should we then not come back on the teams who are in front of us?
“There’s still a lot of turning games that will happen until the end of the season. But it’s down to the quality of our performances,” Arsene told the club’s official website.
Winning the league after the incredible number of injuries we have had to battle with this season will be one of Wenger’s biggest achievements.
