Arsenal return to Premier League action at last and are desperate to start getting some points on the board again after a very mediocre December. We have had a terrible glut of injuries, but Wenger is very positive about our returning players in the next couple of weeks. Luckily jack Wilshere’s injury was not so bad at all, and the boss believes both Wilshere and Ramsey could be available for the Bournemouth match on Sunday, although Ozil is still a doubt.
The boss said: “From Wednesday night, we had of course Jack, who was injured. We had very good news yesterday morning. I saw him walking normally and his scan was good. He’s not out of the game on Sunday yet, so that is positive news. We’ll have Ramsey back in the squad. We have an uncertainty over Ozil, who will have a test earliest tomorrow. That at the moment is a bit 50:50. All the other players will still be out for Bournemouth.”
With Coquelin being sold we are getting short of options in midfield so it will be interesting to see who Wenger chooses to partner Xhaka in the centre of the park.
I can’t see Wenger not playing Ramsey if he is fit enough so where will that leave Wilshere? I think he will play him in Ozil’s position if the German is not available, and still leave Ramsey and Xhaka in the middle. What do you think?
