Arsenal have no fresh injury worries ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
There’s always that anxious wait after a match to see if anyone has picked up an ache, strain, tweak or niggle, but according to Arsene Wenger, “All the players have recovered well from Sunday. There are no new injuries, Rosicky will come back in.”
Mikel Arteta is, of course, suspended after his red card against Napoli in the final group game, but the Arsenal manager did not include Thomas Vermaelen in his comments, leading to the assumption that the Belgian remains sidelined with the injury he picked up against Sp*rs in the FA Cup.
It means Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny – the club’s only two fit centre-halves – will continue, with Wenger quick to praise their partnership.
“They have developed very well and their statistics show that,” he said. “They have a chance to prove it again tomorrow.”
