As we gear up for the game at The Hawthorns this weekend, the team news, as always, is a mixture of good and bad.
The bad news is that the in-form Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs are both doubtful for the game, while in better news, Wenger revealed this morning that Mo Elneny has returned to full training after his recent injury.
Wenger revealed that The Ox has a fitness test today (Thursday) and that everyone else was fit which should hopefully mean Mesut Ozil returns to the starting line up.
We have a great chance to put some pressure back on the top teams and Spurs, as we play first this weekend. However, anything less than a win would be a disaster, with a real gap opening up should we fail to take all three points.
Liverpool visit Man City on Sunday, and Spurs are at home to Southampton on Sunday (of course, why do they always play on a Sunday, and I am sure they play 38 home games?) without their injured Arsenal fan Harry Kane who picked up an ankle injury during last weekend’s FA Cup win over Millwall.
