Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal have suffered no new injuries since beating Aston Villa on Sunday, but warned that after a physically draining game at the Emirates his squad will have to be on their guard against a resurgent Bolton Wanderers.
Giving an injury update to the club website, the boss confirmed:
“Sagna is in the squad. He is a bit ahead of Kieran Gibbs training-wise. Sagna is a bit early still [for tomorrow] but you never know. I might consider it because I have to check all the recoveries of the players who played on Sunday.
“Johan was back in full training today so he is available. [Henry and Arteta] are both ready.
“We have no injuries. But it was a very demanding game physically against Villa on Sunday and it is important that we recover and prepare well for tomorrow night.”
In further good news, Wenger also confirmed that Keiran Gibbs was closing in on a first team return having recovered from surgery on both his groins (I didn’t realise you could have two).
Having joined the first team for training this morning, it looks as though the England international could make an appearance in the coming weeks.
“He had a normal training session yesterday. He is still short to play now but it is good news to have him back and I think one or two more weeks practice will get him back to being available again. That is very positive.”
