Full Arsenal injury update finally GOOD news for Gunners

There are still a few international games to be played before Arsenal fans can relax and look ahead to the Gunners getting back to club action. But as long as the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Wojciech Szczesny come through their respective games without picking up any problems, then things are starting to look up on the injury front for Arsenal.

It looks like the slight fears over the fitness of our England striker Danny Welbeck and French centre back Laurent Koscielny will be groundless, as both Gunners are expected to be available to play against Hull City at the Emirates stadium on Saturday.

And according to physioroom.com, they could be joined in the matchday squad, if not the starting line-up, by club captain Mikel Arteta and the young French striker Yaya Sanogo, giving Arsene Wenger the extra options that he has been searching for in our injury hit start to the season.

And don’t forget that the long term absentees Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry returned to full training last week, although how close they are to match fitness is unsure. And the manager has given the Arsenal fans another piece of good news, as reported by the Daily Mail, with a positive update on the prospective return date for our big centre forward Olivier Giroud.

Wenger said, “Olivier Giroud is recovering very well.

“I believe he is ahead of schedule in terms of rehabilitation. The operation went perfectly.

“Welbeck and [Giroud] can play together in the centre or separately.

“Welbeck also played on one side to Manchester United. Welbeck played in the same team with Rooney and van Persie. He can play down the sides.”

Could Wenger be considering a return to a 4-4-2 system by any chance?

    I believe giroud and welbeck can work together! Anything that can produce goals for the team! I say give it a go, because “i wanna see goals”! Coyg!

    I hope Wenger plays them both upfront especially because of Giroud’s great first touch and passes, they could make a great partnership. As long as Wenger stops playing key players out of position and stops playing Ramsey Wilshere and Ozil together i’m good.

    I’ve been thinking lately now that Ozil is out for a while why not try a 4-4-2 formation

    It benefits all of our players and even lets Sanchez, Walcott, Podolski, and Campbell play in a formation that they are more comfortable with.

    Theres many possible lineups but here’s a couple

    Welbeck-Walcott
    Sanchez-Wilshere-Flamini-Chamberlain

    Walcott-Sanchez
    Chamberlain-Wilshere-Flamini-Gnabry

    Sanchez-Welbeck
    Podolski-Chamberlain-Flamini-Walcott

    The possibilities can go on, but I think it’s an interestign subject.

    We fans are critising our our own players a hell lot. Its because of the pressure from media. Look at the ages of our stars ! They are still verh young interms of football career. Even someone like a jack 22yr or ox 21 Yrs! Ramsey is just 23 ,chambers is 19,alexis 25,theo 26, ozil 26 ,danny 23, The squad is still pretty young. Dont let f**kng english media to get over our club. They are full of crap. Oneday they’ll praise the next day exactly opposite. I am fed up

      the media know what headlines/articles will push AFC fan’s buttons (and so get more views).
      thats why they jumped on the “ozil’s leaving” bandwagon.

      they are certainly not publishing for us, but to do whats best for themselves: get their pageviews and ad clicks…
