Wenger gives account on Almunia
Arsene Wenger may restore Manuel Almunia between the posts for Arsenal on Saturday.
The Spaniard has sat out a number of games since the defeat at Manchester City – where he was blamable for an own goal – with Wenger claiming he caught a chest infection.
Almunia though, supposedly recovered from his month-long lay off and returned to the squad last week but the boss has kept faith in Vito Mannone.
Arsenal’s young Italian stopper showed a few signs of inexperience last Sunday against West Ham but is an undoubted raw talent.
And after Fabianski’s performance in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night, Wenger found more options of goalkeepers at his disposal for Saturday but the French man is not hinting on who he will select to guard the goal against Spurs.
“I don’t know yet what I will do for Saturday but Lukasz Fabianski is available and he has done very well.”
“Almunia is back to his normal level. I have no worries [about playing him on Saturday] but I don’t want to give you any indication because I don’t know myself what I will do for Saturday.” Wenger said
