After an energy sapping battle with Bayern, there’s no good news in terms of injuries ahead of the trip to Swansea on Saturday.
Although Nacho Monreal returns, having been cup-tied in midweek, Bacary Sagna and Lukas Podolski remain sidelined with knee and ankle problems respectively.
Jack Wilshere, of course, will miss ‘three weeks’ with his ankle, while Kieran Gibbs may miss out as a precautionary measure having aggravated something in his thigh last night.
According to the manager, after Bayern, “There are bumps and bruises after a game of that intensity but that should be it.”
After the Swansea game there’s an Interlull which should give us a chance to get some of the injured players back from the run whilst hoping that none of the fit ones get knackered away with their countries.7,912 views
