Vermaelen back, Arteta still out for Liverpool


Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news ahead of tomorrow night’s game against Liverpool.

Captain Thomas Vermaelen returns to the squad having missed the trip to Brighton with an ankle knock, but Mikel Arteta and Francis Coquelin remain sidelined with calf and hamstring problems respectively.

The Spaniard is not far away though, having revealed on his Twitter account that he’s almost ready to make his comeback having last played in the 2-2 FA Cup draw against Swansea.

We sit just 3 points ahead of the Mugsmashers in the league, and having won just one Premier League game in January we’ll be looking to end the month with a bit of a flourish.

The visitors arrive on the back of a humiliating cup defeat to Oldham on Sunday and will, no doubt, be determined to put things right.

It’s all set up for a tight encounter.
