Arsenal are set to welcome back Kieran Gibbs ahead of this weekends final game of the season, while Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere could also return for the match against Norwich.
Ramsey missed last weekends 1-0 win over West Brom with a minor knock and may well be afforded another rest with the FA Cup final looming next weekend. His fitness is a boost however and we are perhaps more likely to witness the return of Jack Wilshere after his recovery from a broken foot.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a massive doubt for next weekends trip to Wembley, with the youngster yet to return to training after his groin complaint. Hopefully he can step up his recovery over the week to be in contention but it appears unlikely.
Arsene Wenger revealed the following team news ahead of the trip to Carrow Road on Sunday:
We have everybody available who played against West Brom. We could have the return of Ramsey, he’s available again. Wilshere could be in the squad for Sunday as well.
[on Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain] Kieran Gibbs will be back in the squad as well. He is in normal training at the moment. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will still be out.
