Good news ahead of Newcastle as latest team news revealed

Arsenal have been handed a boost ahead of Monday night’s Premier League clash with Newcastle, and indeed the hectic April schedule, with good news over Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal.

The Welsh international was sent back to the club during the Interlull to have treatment on a thigh injury, but he’s back in full training and available for selection.

Monreal, meanwhile, stayed in London while the rest of the team went to Dubai as he’d picked up a calf injury. Like Ramsey though, he’s responded well and back to full fitness.

Beyond that, there is no mention of Granit Xhaka who had a bit of a problem in midweek during Switzerland’s 3-3 draw with Denmark, leading to speculation about his availability, but we’re taking the fact there’s no update on him to mean there’s no injury to deal with.

We should get a bit more info from Unai Emery when he meets the press later this afternoon.

In the meantime, get the new Arsecast into your ears.

Good news indeed, especially as Emrey seems to want to use Ramsey, Ozil for the business end of the season.

CL qualification one way or another will be a better return that most of us expected at the start of the season.


Yeah, still not sure how Ramsey wasn’t considered a huge asset to the club if he gets the nod in every big game we play. Is there anything more important to a football team than players who turn up for the big occasions? Bad call, whichever way you look at it.


Yes he’s done alright and he is a good bloke but nothing to bang your head on the table. Sokratis, Holding (get back soon son), Sead, Xhaka, Iwobi, Mikhi and Lacazette have been outstanding and form a solid base we can build on for next year.


That ship sailed eons ago mate. Let’s just enjoy him while he’s still an Arsenal player


I’m sure he was, and is, considered an asset but we don’t have the financial assets to keep him. He’s going and we need to move on – and try not to get ourselves in this position again.


Yes, agree 100%. We’ve really got to get it right in the remaining EPL games (and, hopefully, in the Europa League) and get that consistency that we’ve not had during 2019 so far. CL qualification will bring much needed additional finance and a hook to dangle in front of potential signings as most players are underwhelmed by the prospect of the Europa League on a regular basis.


We still have to rotate but there’s just 8 matches left in the league and potentially 3 more in Europa. We should be able to power through with as stable a selection as possible. Up top I think the selection will be between two up (inverted triangle) top or a striker supported by two. Inverted triangle will mean Auba and Laca likely supported by either Ozil or Ramsey. One man sharp point (either striker) plus wide players Iwobi and either of Mhkitaryan, Ozil or Ramsey will play to slightly more invention on the left with Iwobi (and Kolasinac) In midfield… Read more »


And you have the guts to mention Mustafi in the first XI?

Forest gooner

3rd in the league and europa and spurs out of top 4.

Forest gooner

Champions of europa league


Hopefully, but we’ll need to get that winning consistency we haven’t had so far in 2019. We certainly can, but the Newcastle game will probably be a key match as it’s the first in the run-in.


Seems worthy enough aspirations this season.

Minimum third and above Spurts.

Europa is an added bonus and will represent genuine improvement for a first season.


I’ve been wringing my hands over if I want an old enemy like United to finish 5th or Spurs. I think even though United are historically hated I want Spurs bounced out.


I just came here for no particular reason other than to say I miss Santi… ?


Is torreira available again yet?

Crash Fistfight

Suspended until the Watford game.


Guendouzi will have to do the business till then. There’s no guarantee with Torreira either though. As mentioned, back from injury in a largely poor spell, he lost the ball 5 times (either disspossesed or poor pass) leading to goals against us from BHA, Soton away, West Ham (plus a poor clearance in the game against Liverpool with similar detriment) That was 8 to 11 points dropped. Mustafi cost us the season? Think again. Just to illustrate the skewered thinking by too many. Torreira is still the better option next to the vastly improved and important Granit but some perspective… Read more »
