Both Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolasinac trained with the first team today meaning there’s a good chance they could feature in tomorrow nights game against Watford. This comes as a major boost as we are definitely missing Shkodran Mustafi who is out for 6 weeks.
Wenger said yesterday that Koscielny would have a late test, and Kolasinac had a hip problem, but the fact they both trained has to be a positive sign.
Aaron Ramsey sat out of training, perhaps due to the fact that he played for Wales on Monday as they blew their chance of a World Cup play off place, slumping to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Republic of Ireland. The Welshman could be missing for the game having missed training, which could be a blow.
It’s yet to be seen whether Alexis Sanchez will feature as the Evening Standard mention that he only returned from Chile duty on Thursday afternoon, Arsene Wenger is waiting to chat to him to find out his mental and physical state after his side were also knocked out of the World Cup qualifiers.
Francis Coquelin also trained today with the first team along with Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck. Welbeck’s Dad Stan is expected to have a weekend off from his Bomb Disposal job to attend the game.
