“We have basically everybody available I think,” Wenger said in his pre-match press conference.
“Lacazette is ready to start, yes. I have not decided if he will but he is ready.”
It’s good that Alexandre Lacazette is fit to play but one of the biggest question marks is over which goalkeeper will play for the Gunners.
David Ospina has been the club’s cup competition all season but was forced to play in the Premier League on the weekend after an injury picked up by Peter Cech.
“You will see that tomorrow,” Wenger said when asked which of his stoppers will start in goals on Thursday night.
It’s good to see that Arsene Wenger has a full team to choose from for this clash. CSKA Moscow will be tough opponents, especially in the second leg which is why the Gunners must win on Thursday evening. Find free tips and predictions for this all-important clash at the Emirates here at All Arsenal.
