Gibbs and Ramsey back. Wilshere in contention


Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Kieran Gibbs and Aaron Ramsey are both available for selection against Norwich and that Jack Wilshere could also play a part in the final Premier League game of the season.

“Ramsey is available again, Wilshere could be in the squad again. Gibbs will be back, Chamberlain will still be out,” the boss told press this morning. 

Wilshere hasn’t played for the Gunners since the defeat away at Stoke City having fracturing his foot in a nasty collision with Denmark’s Daniel Agger while on international duty.

Although the boss has long stressed that the 22-year-old would be fit for the World Cup he’ll no doubt be pleased to be back in full training and in contention not just for England’s jaunt to Brazil but also the upcoming FA Cup final.

Kieran Gibbs has been struggling with a hamstring problem since coming on as a substitute in the semi-final at Wembley against Wigan but is now fully recovered, while Aaron Ramsey – rested on Sunday – is also set for a run-out at nearly relegated Norwich.

The only major worry is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who is still struggling with a groin problem and will not take part.
