Arsene Wenger has revealed that Laurent Koscielny could be included in Arsenal’s squad for Saturday’s trip to Watford having spent the international break recovering from the hamstring problem picked up against Olympiacos.
The France international has spent the last 10 days at London Colney and will undergo a fitness test tomorrow. Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini, nursing muscular problems of their own, are also close to a return.
Speaking to Arsenal.com Wenger revealed, “Koscielny has a slight chance to be back on Saturday. He has a definite test tomorrow.
“Arteta and Flamini are back in full training. We need to see how they are and how confident they are, but we can’t rule it out.”
Having watched most of his squad jet off around the world after the impressive 3-0 win over Manchester United the boss was pleased to report that so far he’s not heard of any injuries being sustained.
“From the internationals we only have positive news. We are still waiting for Campbell, Alexis and Ospina to return, but they all texted back to say they are OK, so we just have to see if they were objective in their assessment.”
