Arsene Wenger has confirmed that both Kieran Gibbs and Gervinho could return to the Arsenal squad for Monday’s clash with Wigan and that the rest of his squad escaped from Wednesday’s win over without any new injuries.
Giving an update on the health of his team to the Arsenal website, Wenger revealed:
“From the Wolves game, no. We have the usual bumps and bruises after a game of that intensity, but overall no I don’t think anybody has a problem.
“There is a possibility for Gibbs [to play against Wigan]. It is 50:50 that he will be available again. He is improving day to day and has been practising but not with the team.
“Gervinho is a strong possibility to face Wigan, he is 80:20.”
In further positive news, the boss also confirmed that Francis Coquelin, who has been nursing a hamstring problem, and Abou Diaby, who has been nursing a Diaby problem, would likely return to first team training next week.
“Diaby will not play against Wigan. He is alright though. Diaby and Coquelin will come back into the squad next week for full training.”
With three days of training before our next match, let’s hope nobody limps out of action due to some London Colney shenanigans.
