Wenger: The squad to face Leicester City
Arsene Wenger has revealed there is a possibility of naming the same starting eleven from last weekend when his side welcomes Leicester City at the Emirates stadium.
The Gunners host Claudio Ranieri’s league leaders on Sunday in desperate need of a victory to remain on course for a first Premier League title in more than a decade.
Arsenal have been troubled by injuries to key players for the best part of this season, but ahead of the run-in to this campaign, Wenger has been boosted by the returns of more fit-again stars than ever.
According to the Frenchman, he has the option of naming an unchanged starting line-up from the one which won 2-0 at Bournemouth last week.
“It is a similar squad available to last week, we are still early in the week but we should have everyone available.” the Arsenal manager said
“Of course Rosicky [is out], and Wilshere is not ready. But everyone else should be available.”
With Francis Coquelin now three weeks into his return to action, Mathieu Flamini could be dropped to the bench for the first time in months.
Wenger’s only change in the Gunners’ last fixture saw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replace Joel Campbell – a move which paid off as the English youngster found the net against Eddie Howe’s men.
