Wojciech Szczesny will play for Arsenal’s under-21s tomorrow and could still be added to the first team squad on Saturday should he come through the clash unscathed.
The Polish international has not featured for the Gunners since the 6-1 victory over Southampton back in August; a game in which he dropped a clanger after injuring his ankle in the warm-up.
Speaking this afternoon at Great Ormond Street Hospital where The Arsenal Foundation has funded the opening of a new Lung Function Unit, Arsene Wenger confirmed the stopper would feature against West Ham at London Colney tomorrow at 1pm.
In all likelihood Vito Mannone will retain his starting berth for Fulham’s visit this weekend, but it’s good that our number one is on the mend.
The boss also revealed that both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey could return from injury, with both set for fitness tests tomorrow. Given Jack Wilshere is suspended, the added midfield options will certainly come as a relief.
