Injury update: Wenger gives good and bad news for Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has been able to put a smile on the face of arsenal fans by confirming that Shkodran Mustafi who got injured a couple of weeks back at their game against stoke city which ended in a 3-1 win over the potters.
The four times arsenal has lost this: season 3 in the premier league and their exit of the league cup as they lost to the saints had one feature in common the 24 year old center back was out of the team hence all the matches where the German has played, arsenal is still yet to lose and as a defender his importance cannot be understated.
There’s still a lot of uncertainty surrounding Danny Welbeck and Oxlade Chamberlain’s return to the side for the game against Crystal Palace. Arsene Wenger plans to ease Welbeck back into the team following his long term injury issue. And on Chamberlain Wenger said “he could join the training on Saturday.”
On the downside Kieran Gibbs who was gifted a rare premier league start over fellow left back Nacho Monreal, picked up a knee injury in the last match. He gave a somewhat impressive performance before being forced to limp off the field. sadly he still wouldn’t be available for the game on sunday. Theo Walcott is still out with a calf problem.
But all seem to be short term issues.
