Arsenal’s right-back Carl Jenkinson might be coming back sooner than expected as he’s already prepared to make his appearance in the reserve squad.
According to the newspapers, Jenkinson is no further than 2 weeks away of being ready to play for the senior squad, so the full-back danger at Arsenal is finally averted now that Sagna, Gibbs and Jenkinson are all fit to play.
With those injuries out of the way now Arsene Wenger only has to worry about bringing back Wilshere and Santos and he will have his first team back in action. According to the Frenchman Wilshere’s injury is progressing well so he’s expected to be fit until the end of March and return for the Gunners in time to get fit for England’s EURO 2012 campaign where he’s highly likely to be called-up regardless of who will be the national squad manager by then.
Diaby is also out, but with Song and Coquelin at a high in the last few games Wenger doesn’t have to worry about him. Santos’ return remains the most important thing for the Frenchman who needs to make sure the left side of his defense is also at its best and that he has a back-up for that position as well.
