Xhaka fitness boost ahead of United clash


In his press conference on Thursday, Arsene Wenger first said that Granit Xhaka was ‘out’ of Sunday’s Premier League encounter with Manchester United.

Pressed a little later on, he said that the Swiss midfielder had a ‘little chance’ to be involved as he coped with a swollen ankle.

Now, it seems as if he’s very much in contention for tomorrow, taking part in training today ahead of tomorrow’s game.

It also looks like Shkodran Mustafi is up for selection again, returning after a few weeks out, and he could take the place of Gabriel who frustrated the Arsenal manager with his concession of a penalty at White Hart Lane.

Arseblog News suggested XI for tomorrow: 3-4-3

Half a door; a kettle, three small boys under a big coat to look like a grown-up, Groot; Eight bananas, some dust, flower petals, cinnamon sticks; old shorts that have been left in a sports bag for too long, a flat tyre, Inanimate Carbon Rod.

Subs: Ospina, Debuchy, Jenkinson, Maitland-Niles, Penchmont-Waverely-Happenstance-Magee, Barnaby Stingwing, Walcott (c).
