The Gunners have no fresh injury worries ahead of this weekends Premier League tie with fellow Londoners Queens Park Rangers, with Lukasz Fabianski also closing in on a return.
The Polish goalkeeper has been absent since sustaining a rib injury against Norwich last month which has since seen compatriot Wojciech Szczesny cement his number one spot. With just three matches remaining it will be difficult for Fabianski to regain a starting spot.
While Olivier Giroud remains suspended from his red card against Fulham, the Gunners have a fully fit side (bar the long term absentees Diaby and Miyaichi) as they attempt to maintain their top four place.
Arsene Wenger revealed the following team news at his pre-match press conference:
[on the team news] We still have Olivier Giroud suspended so, compared to last Sunday, we have everyone else available.
[on Lukasz Fabianski] He is still unavailable. From next week onwards, he should be alright.

[on the overall injury situation] It is a good position. We have done well recently. Maybe we benefit from the fact there is only one game per week. So the squad is a bit more stable injury-wise.
