Injury News Update. Are Gibbs, Djourou and Chamakh Ready?

The good news are continuing to pour on the Emirates Stadium as more and more players become ready to play for the Gunners.

After having to deal with massive squad problems for quite a long time, Wenger recovered most of his unavailable players a couple of weeks ago, and the follow-up is even better as the Gunners will finally be able to start a match with a left-back on the left side instead of a center-back.

Kieran Gibbs has resumed training and will now probably be available for the weekend game against Sunderland allowing club defensive star Thomas Vermaelen to finally play in the center after having to cover up for Gibbs and Santos on the left side.

Djourou is also back from injury, but that’s not too much of a big news for Wenger who already has the central positions packed, and with both Sagna and Gibbs now fit there’s no need to dispatch neither Vermaelen nor Koscielny on the wings.

Chamakh is back too as Morocco ended their run in the African Nations Cup after a very disappointment performance from both the national squad and the Arsenal striker, so if he wasn’t able to help his squad is unlikely he’ll do much for Arsenal in the rest of his time at the club before a very likely summer departure.

    a player is gud at his own number. i.e one plays gud at the no he trains for. so vermaleen is gud enough at sentral defence than left back. therefore i can say Gibbs can be gud at left back than vermaleen. lets have the backline like this, sagna, kosher, verminator & gibbs.

    Whether these 3 are fit or not should have no impact on the first x1. for me the back 4 of sagna mertesacler koscielny vermaelen is as good as it gets for us at the moment. the only player that can improve that back 4 defensively is song instead of mertesacker as i believe coquelin or wilshire would also improve the midfield. for me my best x1 would be this

    szcesney
    sagna song koscielny vermaelen
    wilshire arteta
    walcott chamberlain gervinho
    rvp

    bench: mannone mertesacker santos coquelin ramsey diaby afobe
