It`s safe to say Arsenal haven`t quite be the same since Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin got injured in quick succession, but after Alexis Sanchez made his comeback last weekend in the defeat to Chelsea (in which he played very well) Francis Coquelin is now available once again for selection.

Mathieu Flamini has been filling in for Le Coq and has done a fair to middling job, but his age is beginning to tell and we`re being left a little vulnerable at the back, so the timing of Sanchez and Coquelin is impeccable as the Gunners look like they are starting to falter.

In his pre-match presser Wenger gave the injury news.

“Francis is available to play now because he has passed two weeks of full training. Tomas is also available for selection.”

“Mertesacker is out because of the red card, and everybody else is available, apart from Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla. After that it is just a question of selection and decision-making, that is the key.”

“Jack and Santi are progressing well but they are at least a few weeks away. But these two apart, it is just about competitiveness and match fitness. “
