Arsenal Injury Boost As Trio Set To Face Liverpool + The Ox Latest

Arsenal have been given a timely injury boost with Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Debuchy and Mikle Arteta set to return to the squad to face Liverpool while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could also feature.

Wilshere has endured another frustrating season and hasn’t played since suffering ankle ligament damage against Manchester United in November.

However, the Mirror claim that Jack is now back in full training and is expected to be in the squad when Liverpool come to the Emirates after the international break.

Arteta and Debuchy were both back in light training last week but the newspaper suggests they too are now in full training and will be available to face the Merseysiders on April 4th.

Arteta hasn’t played in over four months and Coquelin has cemented his place in the team since the Spaniard has been out so I personally don’t see Mikel regaining his first team place anytime soon, but he’ll certainly be a better back-up than Flamini.

It will be interesting to see what Arsene decides to do with Debuchy though. He hasn’t played since January and Bellerin has performed very well in recent weeks, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the young Spaniard kept his place against Liverpool with Debuchy eased back into action.

The final piece of good team news is that the Mirror also claim that The Ox is due to step-up his return from a hamstring injury and is hopeful of being passed fit to face Liverpool.

If he does return, it means we’ll have virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from with only Diaby and Gnabry unavailable. Unless we pick up any fresh injuries during the international break – which is almost a certainty.
