Arsenal Fitness Update Ahead of Leicester Game.

Good morning readers! How has your weekend been so far? I guess you are having fun ahead of our game at Leicester this evening. I am shivering here at the moment. It's been raining since Friday and I am feeling so cold.


As the topic implies, the current fitness status of our players is what I am about to let you aware of but before I proceed, I will like to give a highlight of some of yesterday's Premier League games.

The Matchweek 3 battle started with the game between Burnley and Manchester United. The game ended in a 0-0 draw contrary to many's expectations. You may ask, "But how come? Didn't Angel Di Maria play?" Yes, he did play but that did not stop them from dashing out two cool points. The Red Devils are going through tough times. No Champions League involvement, already out of the Capital One Cup and they have only gotten 2 points from their first 3 EPL games. May heaven deliver them.

Whether the Manchester clubs were injected with a fluid that wiould make them feel dizzy on the pitch, I do not know. Man United even tried by getting a point away from home but their rival, Man City were beaten at the Etihad by Stoke City. Don't ask me how that happened. This is the English Premier League which is so unpredictable.

Everton v Chelsea ended 3-6. Don't start to think it was a basketball game because I saw them kicking the ball. These same guys [Everton] almost caused us heartache last week. Hm! Now to the main reason why we are here.

The Leicester game is at hand and we have been made to know that Mikel Arteta who sustained an injury in the first leg tie of our Champions League qualifier is not yet fit but is close to a return. The Spanish midfielder is out for today. The same applies to Kieran Gibbs.

Aaron Ramsey is back after missing out of Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Besiktas. He was sent off in the first leg and that made him miss the return tie. No injuries were recorded on Wednesday night.

Arsenal's new goalkeeper, David Ospina had been out through injury. This worry began shortly after he signed for us. Good to see him back in training. However, naming the Colombian in the squad for today would be too early so he is out. Serge Gnabry is making progress in his recovery. Also not forgetting Olivier Giroud who is out till 2015. That's all on injuries.

Over to you my bosses. Do you see Arsenal securing a comfortable victory against newly promoted Leicester or do you see it the other way? Let us hear you via the comment section below.
