We are used to hearing lots of bad news from Arsenal on the injury front, thoroughly sick of it to be more accurate, so it is always a nice change when we get some positive updates on the Arsenal players. With a massive away game with Liverpool coming up this weekend the Gunners need all the help we can get as well, so the latest team update from Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal website is a very timely boost indeed.
The Arsenal squad that will travel to face Jurgen Klopp’s under pressure at Anfield tomorrow has been strengthened in all three areas of the outfield. Our best central defender Laurent Koscielny is back after picking up that knock in Germany that many think led to our collapse against Bayern Munich and his return could be crucial in stopping the likes of Coutinho, Lallana and Firmino from hurting us.
We also have Aaron Ramsey back to strengthen the central midfield that has been seriously short in recent weeks. Whether he comes straight in for Granit Xhaka we will have to wait and see but with Elneny still on the recovery trail it is great to have the Welshman available at least.
And finally the Arsenal side is boosted by the availability of both Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck at the sharp end of things and that is where we hope the key aspects of the match will take place. The Liverpool defence has been shaky to say the least and we need to exploit that but they may also have an injury boost with Dejan Lovren according to The Telegraph.
Will this multiple fitness boost help Arsenal to a crucial result at Liverpool?
