Arsene Wenger has given the latest team news ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Aston Villa and there’s some good news in the injury darkness.
Worries over Jack Wilshere have proved unfounded as his ankle turn against Dortmund appears to have been minor and he’s in the squad. The boss said, “”It was his left ankle and it was only a kick. He is alright.”
Calum Chambers has recovered from tonsillitis while Mathieu Flamini, who was kept out of the Champions League game with a minor thigh problem, also returns.
However, and there’s always a however, the Mathieu Debuchy situation is still not clarified, as the manager said, “We’ll know about Debuchy tonight after his examination whether he’ll need surgery.
“If he doesn’t need surgery, it’ll be six weeks. If he does need surgery, it will be three months.”
Let’s keep fingers crossed it’s the former, but given it’s almost a week since the injury, we’re fearing the worst.
