Arsene Wenger has given an update to the latest team news ahead of this weekends crunch tie with Manchester City, with Nacho Monreal close to returning while Aaron Ramsey still a few weeks off.
The Welshman has been Arsenal’s most missed player this year since his thigh injury in late December, and he had been schedule to be fit for the recent ‘March Madness’ fixtures. However after numerous setbacks the midfielder is within a few weeks of returning to action, and hopefully that will be more accurate this time with the medical staff likely to be patient.
The return of Monreal to the fray is a boost for the defence with injuries to Koscielny and the Spaniard limiting options at the back.
Luckily we have not sustained any further knocks after the 2-2 draw with Swansea on Tuesday night.
Wenger revealed the following team news:
[on the latest team news] Compared to Tuesday night, we have no new injuries and no-one coming back as well.
- Juventus to make swoop for Arsenal summer transfer target in January
- Man City loss proves club are Champions League ready claims Arsenal star
- Arsenal boss Arteta takes ‘hands on approach’ with £27m-star’s new club
[on the injured players] Monreal should be the first one back in training because he is just starting to run in the next few days. After him, Ramsey is progressing well but we need to be patient for a few more weeks.
Predicted lineup to follow….
