Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with West Brom.
The Gunners head for an early kick-off at the Hawthorns, and after illness swept through the squad, it looks as if those who were on their sick beds – like Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi – are back in contention.
Speaking about availability for the weekend, Wenger said, “Gibbs is uncertain at the moment. Oxlade-Chamberlain has a test today [hamstring].
“Elneny has joined in again, so apart from long-term injuries we should have everyone available.
“Elneny looked like bad ankle injury, he has recovered well, he’s a strong boy and has come back quickly.”
So, as full a squad as we could hope for bar the longer-term absences, let’s hope the team can build on last weekend’s FA Cup win with a Premier League victory to take us into the Interlull.
