Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that Julio ‘The Beast’ Baptista has reurned to fitness and will be in the squad to face Newcastle on Saturday.

Baptista is yet to have any real run out in the team since his arrival from Real Madrid, but the excitment over the player is so great the news that The Beast is over his injury and in the squad to face Newcastle will have Gooner’s purring.

His return after a hamstring injury is more than timely after it has been confirmed Gilberto is likely to miss the game for family reasons.

‘Nobody has come back from the internationals with any trouble,’ Wenger confirmed.

‘We have Julio Baptista back in the squad and Freddie Ljungberg is available too.

‘We have had him on the phone and he says he is perfectly all right. Jens Lehmann is available again.’

The Magpies who have had troubles all season might be more than a little concerned when they see this monster of a player fit and ready for action.

Do you think Beasts eat Magpies?
