Arsenal Injury Porblem Lessen – Koscielny Fit For Tottenham Clash

 Much has been said about Arsenal’s doom regarding the injury suffered by nine first team players, but the situation seems to be improving gradually with a couple of players returning to training.

And the good news is that most of the injured players will have ample time to recover during the international break, however, the Gunners first need to see off Tottenham in the North London derby on Sunday.

The Telegraph claims centre-back Laurent Koscielny will be in contention for the Spurs game, as boss Arsene Wenger did not risk him against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Koscielny, 30, is still nursing a hip injury but should have no problems facing Tottenham, as per reports.

Also, Mikel Arteta is proving his fitness having returned to training, and the former Everton man should be ready for the London derby. Should Arteta start the game, Joel Campbell could be dropped for Santi Cazorla to play on the right wing.

Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin should also return from injury after the international break, alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who is expected to rejoin training tomorrow. But he will not be risked against Spurs nonetheless.

Veteran midfielder Tomas Rosicky has also been cleared by the Gunners’ medical team to resume training after undergoing surgery on his knee in August, although he will still need time to regain full fitness.

Arsenal will hope to defeat Spurs in Sunday’s game in order to remain within touching distance of Manchester City.
