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.
