Earlier today the Arsenal medical team announced that Aaron Ramsey was being assessed with a groin problem ahead of Sunday’s game against Everton.
The good news from this afternoon’s press conference is that the Welshman is in full training, and all going well available for selection for the trip to Goodison Park.
We’re still somewhat in the dark over Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny though, with Unai Emery saying, “We are waiting for tomorrow’s training, because some players – Xhaka, Koscielny – didn’t train with us today. They are working alone with the physio.
“Aaron Ramsey started training normally today and the other players are well.”
Ramsey’s resurgence in recent times has been mirrored by that of Mesut Ozil who has been selected for four consecutive games for the first time this season, and was handed the man of the match award for his performance in the 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday night.
The relationship between the coach and the player seems more solid than it has at any other time of the campaign, and the Spaniard is pleased with the way the number 10 is playing.
“He’s working very well, playing very well, he’s helping us,” he said.
“I’m very happy with him. I think the team has a good atmosphere, good spirit with each player helping us with their qualities and good behaviour.
“That’s the spirit I want, they are doing that, and Mesut is like the others.”
Sunday’s team selection will be interesting. Where Emery has had doubts about Ozil in the past are away games, so we’ll wait and see if he keeps faith with him for this one, or decides to go another way.
