Arsene Wenger has been handed a huge boost by the return of Sol Campbell and Jose Antonio Reyes.

Arsenal face a rejuvenated Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Saturday evening, and Arsene hopes to have a selection problem with the return of two key players.

Sol Campbell has not seen any first team action since he left Highbury at half time in the 3-2 defeat to West Ham, and Reyes not since that amazing 0-0 draw against Real Madrid.

Speaking with Arsenal TV Online, Wenger tells of their return.

‘We have the usual injuries, but we could have Sol Campbell and Jose Antonio Reyes back.’

‘I don’t know yet whether they will play on Saturday or not but they are very close. ‘

‘Sol did a conscientious job [in the Reserves]. His movement was better, he is 90 per cent there to compete for a place in the team.’
