We will draw level on points with fourth place Chelsea with a win at West Ham on Saturday lunchtime as things get back to league acton.
We knocked Blackpool out of the FA Cup last weekend after our 4-1 win over Fulham in the league and had a week off, so fingers crossed we can beat West Ham at the Olympic Stadium to keep the pressure on the top four teams.
Emery has been handed a major boost this week as it looks like several defenders are back from injury including Monreal and Bellerin.
Mesut Ozil (knee/back/virus/strike) is back in the squad though it’s still not clear whether Emery will play the German just yet, while his compatriot Shkodran Mustafi also returns along with Captain Kos, Laurent Koscielny.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck remain our long term absentees, but Emery will be more than happy being able to choose from almost all of his defenders.
Sami Nasri and Lucas Perez could return to haunt us in the game, while Jack Wilshere misses out through injury.
Come on you mint greens, can’t see it all going our own way tomorrow but hopefully we’ll have enough to come out on top.
