Szczesny facing fitness test for Anfield


Wojciech Szczesny is facing fitness tests to determine his availabilty for Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.

According to Arsene Wenger the Polish stopper will face a test today and one on Saturday on the rib injury which kept him out of the trip to Stoke last week. Although Vito Mannone deputised well, Gooners will feel more comfortable with the number 1, especially after an outstanding performance there last season.

Wenger also revealed that Laurent Koscielny has recovered from his calf strain and is back in the squad, now he just has to make a decision whether or not to break up the partnership between Vermaelen and Mertesacker that has started the season strongly from a defensive point of view.

The manager also provided a brief update regarding Bacary Sagna and Jack Wilshere, saying, “After the international break they shouldn’t be too far away from training”, with both on course for a return in late September/early October.

Other than that it appears the squad is in good shape but until tomorrow’s deadline at 11pm, it’s hard to make any predictions about who might or might not be involved at Anfield.

the only sam is nelson

he had his best game of the year at anfield last season so fingers crossed he can play as well if he’s fit

if not then our mafia henchman should scare the bejesus out of the little racist so we’ll be fine

0-0 it is, then. back to the glory days of george

big dawg

Arsenal 5-0 Liverpool. Really can’t wait to see Girolskizorla at full strength…


I presume the monsters first name is Jalex?

Ar5enal > 2purs

Like the Transformers that could combine into a giant robot. Oh yeah.


Wenger talk I guess.
Just like podolski wasn’t fit to start the season.


I am as bored as a fat kid with a plate of carrots.
Bring on litterpool.


Haha good one! 🙂

Does this mean he’s like a new signing? I want a new signing.

I hate the fucking transfer window. Can’t wait for this to be over. When it shuts I’m going to smash it with a brick, then they’ll have to board it up and it’ll look all derlict and scummy and no one will want to bother with it anymore.


Like liverpool then : )

Arsenal 3 – 0 Lollerpool. Very happy with our first two games defensively, the racist may cause a few problems but think its nothing our back four + super goalie cant handle. Just need to get these goals in to shut the press up about RvP and ease the pressure off the new boys. Up the Arsenal!


If our defense can keep up their excellent play I won’t mind either Szcz#1 or Mannone in goal. Especially if Koscielny is back as well. Liverpool don’t present the size worry that other teams do so I’d rather TV5 & Kos as the CB pair ahead of BFG.

yep, makes sense to me. As long as Koscielny is fit enough to start, of course.

Koscielny was really impressive when he played at right back last season.How about not breaking the Vermsacker combination and play Koscielny instead of Jenks at RB?

Fairly recent Gooner

I’ve got Jenkinson in my fantasy team, so not a fan of this idea, I want those clean sheet points!

Igor Stepanovs

Have to say Manone looked pretty solid last week.


So in simple terms you wouldn’t mind him between the sticks again at anfield?.
Nose in the poles or
Pole in the pole.

Pole wins!


I will prefer Manone over the pole
