It is not as if the Arsenal injury problems are easing off, because Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta have both joined their team mates in the treatment room in the last couple of games, but at least Arsene Wenger has some of his squad available again.
The two French internationals Olivier Giroud and Lauren Koscielny have been sorely missed while being out of action with Tibia and ankle tendon problems respectively, buty both are back and Arsene Wenger will bring them back into the starting line up for today’s Premier League away clash with West Brom.
The boss spoke about the Baggies and their threats and was keen to point out the crosses from the flanks and their strength at set pieces, so having our first choice centre back in the team, with the big centre forward very good at defending from corners and free kicks as well, could be vital.
Even if Danny Welbeck is fit after picking up minor knocks to his knee and hamstring, I think Wenger will err on the side of caution and leave him on the bench for this one, especially with a midweek game against high flying Southampton coming up.
Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs
Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla
Alexis, Giroud, Chamberlain
Is this the Arsenal team to get our Premier League campaign back on track and heading in the right direction?
