Wenger confirms another injury boost ahead of West Brom
Arsene Wenger has confirmed more good news on the injury front heading into Saturday’s Premier League clash with West Bomwich Albion.
The Gunners are currently fifth in the Premier League after being eliminated from the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Arsenal’s injury woes continued last weekend as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain limped off with a hamstring problem, limiting Wenger’s options in midfield.
However, after revealing that the England international is set for a swift return to action, the Arsenal manager has also confirmed that Mohamed Elneny is coming back.
“Gibbs is uncertain at the moment. Oxlade-Chamberlain has a test today, but overall it’s the squad that was available [for Lincoln]. Elneny has joined in again. Apart from Cazorla, we should have everybody available,” Wenger said during his pre-match press conference
According to Wenger, Elneny is not being rushed back from the ankle problem he suffered in the FA Cup clash against Sutton United.
“No, because at the start it looked like it was a very bad ankle injury. He has recovered well because he’s a very strong boy and very keen to come back as quickly as possible. It worked well for him.” the Gunners boss added
