There are quite a number of the first team players currently injured, and it looks quite silent since we have been grinding out desirable results for a while now. The likes of Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott have joined treatment room.
That adds to the number of players who have occupied strategic positions in the ‘ever busy’ department of the club where Shad Forsythe happens to superintend over. I’m sure Mertesacker is a handful for him already.
Be that as it may, life moves on, and so we have to line up against Ludogerets in the Champions League on Tuesday night. Of course, Monsieur Wenger is saddled with the responsibility of rallying his available players to come out with the much-needed three points
We have a couple of fixtures coming up in the Premier league, but first, we have to dispatch this Champions League before then. Here’s what the manager has been saying as regards his latest team news:
on team news…
Who did not travel is Monreal, Cazorla and Bellerin, Walcott – both are more or less injuries. Some of them being very close, like Walcott, Bellerin had a little incident in the last minute of training so they are not here. For us it’s a big game because as you said, if we win we can qualify. But if we lose, you can as well be in a difficult situation. So we know the importance of the game is massive.
on whether Carl Jenkinson will play…
He is in the squad. I have not named the team yet, I will decide that tomorrow. He is in the squad. I have plenty of right backs in the squad, three or four.
