Full Arsenal injury update – Full squad in October?

AFC INJURY UPDATE: by AH

Return dates for Giroud (muscle) and Vermaelen (knock) are unknown but the pair are expected to be fit in the coming days.  Giroud and Vermaelen both picked up the injures on international duty in training. Giroud was forced to miss France’s game vs Finland, but his is expected back in the team this week.

Dider Dechamps told reporters of Giroud’s problem before France’s 1-0 win over Finland;

“He will work apart (from the squad), which will allow him to play the next match (against Belarus). Considering it’s a muscular problem, I better give him more time. I would of preferred Olivier at full fitness, but (football) is like that.”

As for Vermaelen, the captain’s injury has also been cleared up and he should be fully fit in the coming days. The 26 year old was seen taping up his ankle in a Belgian training session, however afterwards Vermaelen confirmed the injury;

“It is fine, it just my ankle from last week – but it is okay,”

Goalkeepers, Szczesny (rib) and Fabianksi (back); Fabianski was called up to the Polish national team despite his injury, however it hasn’t caused any further complications and we could have both Polish goalkeepers back in training this week. Vito Mannone is expected to keep his place in the team to face Southampton.

Long term injures to Tomas Rosicky (calf), Bacary Sagna (broken leg) and Jack Wilshere (ankle) are all set to be resolved this month with the trio expected to be back in training within the month.

Emmanuel Frimpong could be back sooner than expected after he Tweeted, “I will be back in full training with the squad on the 17th of this month.” After a long lay off, however, it will take the Ghanaian some time to be match ready.

Marouane Chamakh  continues to suffer from Malaria according to some reports whereas others think it is just a virus that has kept him away from international duty. Whatever it is, we all wish the Moroccan well.

With a bit of luck, Arsene Wenger could have a fully fit squad of players to choose from in October. Is this why he was not too busy in the transfer window?

I know its a bit of wishful thinking but it would be great if Wenger had everyone fit for the games against Chelsea and Man City later this month, but we should be ookay for the next match against Southampton…….

    Rosicky, wilshere, sagna to come back are all like new singings, expecially if wilshere gets his form back, and rosicky plays like he did in the latter stages of last season, and sagna just bees sagna, frimpong will add extra depth, and maybe a few reinforcements in jan to fresh things up, and we are loooking good

    I can safely say right now im glad im not Wenger, picking a team when Sagna, Rosicky and Wilshere are back will be very, very difficult. Am actually excited about our depth in positions. Hoping Coquelin gets some game time, wouldn’t like to see him leave, such an exciting prospect. COYG!!!

    yeah I’m happy that our team will be in good shape come early October as we really need a fully fit squad as fans say a fit squad is a winning squad.

    Even if Wilshare is back in October, he should be used as a substitute only. We should be very careful with him.
    Our midfild right now is excellent and we no need to rush Jack.
    Aslo we shuld be careful witj sagna as he already broke the ame leg twise.
    As for Roscisky, should be playing agains lower side at home to get cazorla some rest.
    If Grioud starts scoring , then surely we can challange for titles
