Good and Bad News Surface for Arsenal as They Get Set to Face Stoke.


Arsene Wenger has revealed the state of his squad as they prepare to travel to Stoke City on Saturday afternoon. Stay put as we unleash the updates to you.

There will be a lot of late assessments today because some players got knocks and bruises from Wednesday night's encounter with Southampton. Laurent Koscielny is one of those who will undergo fitness tests. Nacho Monreal is out but Kieran Gibbs has a high chance of making the team for tomorrow. Rosicky might miss out due to a thigh problem and Yaya Sanogo with a calf injury.

The manger stressed that he will like to see Koscielny play his third game since returning from injury because his presence on the pitch is very vital to the progress of the team. Yes, I agree.

For Theo Walcott, he is not going to participate at the Britannia Stadium as he is still struggling with an inflammation to his groin. An injection was given to him today as a remedy for the problem so he needs some time to rest. On to the nice part of the news, the positive one.

Wojciech Szczesny and long time absentee, Mathieu Debuchy have resumed training. I know you are already screaming. Calm down please! I do not think you will see them in action tomorrow. Wenger says he wants to do things accordingly so as not to cause further disasters. He wants them to fully regain fitness before including them in the squad.

It has been so cruel on the injury front for Arsenal so far this season. At least one player gets injured in almost every game. This had been the case for many years now and it does not look as if it is going to end anytime soon. Something has to be done about this matter.

Oh!! So we are even playing against Stoke tomorrow. I pray they do not end up injuring all our players. Since it has been a while I watched their game, I do not know whether what a friend told me is true or false. He said Stoke do not play roughly anymore. I just pray so.
