Debuchy, Diaby and Wilshere ready to face Reading?

Arsene Wenger now has practically his whole Arsenal squad fit and ready (only Oxlade-Chamberlain is definitely out) ahead of this weekends FA Cup semifinal against Reading at Wembley, and it will be very interesting to see how many changes Le Prof makes for the game.

Diaby set for THIRD Arsenal game in over two years?

Many of us Arsenal fans thought we had seen the last of Abou Diaby in an Arsenal shirt as his contract is nearing an end and that one previous appearance this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat by Southampton in September, was followed by the latest in a ridiculously long string of injury problems.

Why Arsenal should NOT risk Koscielny at Burnley

You will not find many Arsenal fans who would disagree with the statement that the France international centre back Laurent Koscielny is the best defender in the Gunners´ squad. And now that our BFG Per Mertesacker seems to have shaken off the dip in form affecting his performances before the international break, that central pairing looks very strong again for Arsenal, just as it did last season when we got so many clean sheets.

Wilshere and other Arsenal stars return, but who will play?

It is absolutely brilliant news for Arsenal that their treatment room has been emptied, and Jack Wilshere, Matthieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby, Serge Gnabry and Mikel Arteta all played in Arsenal’s Under 21 win over Stoke City reserves. Wilshere and Gnabry both played the whole game and Diaby even managed 70 minutes on the pitch, so their fitness can be taken on trust for now.

‘Sensitive’ Theo Walcott STILL not fit? (says Wenger)

Theo Walcott injured a cruciate ligament in his knee in January 2014, but despite him playing his first comeback game in October last year the Arsenal striker is still deemed not to be at peak fitness yet.

WOW! Diaby back in action as Arsenal treatment room empties!!

It remains to be seen whether the Arsenal fans will get to see anything of our injury ravaged French central midfielder in the Arsenal first team this season, but Abou Diaby is back, or on his way back to match fitness at least.

Özil reveals secret of his Fantastic Arsenal Form

With his all action performance at Old Trafford in the FA cup, the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Özil even made the former Man United midfielder Paul Scholes eat his words. The pundit’s recent criticism of our club record signing was, for me, based more on his price tag and the performances of the playmaker in the early part of this season and the second half of the last one.

Is Jack Wilshere talking himself out of a job?

Jack Wilshere is out injured at the moment but is expected to return to the Arsenal squad in a couple of weeks. The terrier has been playing as a defensive midfielder for England although Arsene Wenger considers him to be more of an attacking force in the Premiership. The Gunners already have a plethora of midfielders though and Jack may find it much harder to get some games when he returns, and one of those positions seems to be certain to be Francis Coquelin’s to lose while he stays fit.
