TEAM NEWS: Wenger On Wilshere, Arteta, Ramsey + Vermaelen

By on January 27, 2014

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been holding his press conference this morning ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Southampton and he’s given the latest team news ahead of the match.

Unfortunately, the Frenchman has revealed that Jack Wilshere is a doubt for the game after picking up a minor ankle knock during our 4-0 win over Coventry City on Friday night.

Thankfully, should Jack fail to make the trip to the south coast we’ll have both Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey to call upon after Wenger confirmed the duo are now fit and available.

Ramsey has missed the last month after picking up a thigh strain against West Ham back on Boxing Day while Arteta has been out with a calf problem, but it will be good to have the duo back in contention, particularly with Wilshere a doubt.

Thomas Vermaelen is also fit again after missing the last three games with a knee problem suffered against Tottenham, but the Belgian will most likely be on the bench with Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny continuing their fine partnership at the back.

    Wenger is the only coach that put his players ahead of the team and fans, he plays little boys he wishes to make star and sell for big money, we have Podolski, Rosicky so why cry over Wilshere? If you think the team is not large enough then buy players and stop complaining. I think we need two more players, one striker and one defender. No good coach will have the likes of Poldoski and Rosicky and bench then for the likes of Wilshere, Walcott Ox and Ramsey. That is why these English players don’t become world star, they never get to accept the truth that they are not good enough to enable them improve. Wenger stop been sentimental and sign or give the top class players first team football and allow the kids grow and learn.
