Wenger Confirms Triple Injury Boost Ahead Of Norwich Clash

By on October 18, 2013

The boss is currently doing his pre-match press conference ahead of the visit of Norwich City to the Emirates tomorrow and he’s confirmed a triple injury boost with Bacary Sagna, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla all passed fit to play.

The news on Thursday was that Ozil was a doubt with a minor knee injury he picked up while playing for Germany on Tuesday night, while Sagna was due to face a late fitness tests on his hamstring injury that kept him out of the West Brom game and the subsequent international break.

However, speaking to the media this morning, Wenger has confirmed the duo along with midfielder Cazorla are all fit to face the Canaries.

Cazorla has been in full training all week but hasn’t played for us since the 1-0 win over Tottenham on the 1st September so is lacking in match sharpness, and Wenger has hinted he may not start the game.

But to have him back in the squad is a huge boost. Hopefully he can get some minutes under his belt this weekend and push for a start against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

We’re slowly getting our injured players back and the squad is looking far more competitive than it did a month ago.

What would be your team to play Norwich?
