Arsenal face Burnley at the Emirates on Sunday, and at his press conference this morning Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update.
There are a number of players making a return, but there’s no sign of Theo Walcott coming back from a calf injury which has kept him out since the 2-1 defeat to Man City in December.
“From last week Bellerin, Coquelin and Gibbs are back in the group,” he said. “They should be available to be selected for Sunday.”
Having gone off against Swansea in the 4-0 win last weekend, there was a worry over in-form striker Olivier Giroud, but the French international hasn’t suffered any serious damage thankfully
“Giroud is back in training since yesterday,” he said. “No Walcott though.”
The Arsenal manager also revealed that Per Mertesacker is a couple of weeks away from making his comeback after suffering a knee injury in pre-season.
