Returning of Injured Players

A timely return.

Arsenal team and fans were totally devastated when we heard of news that the in-form Van Persie and Clichy-replacement Gibbs have both picked up injuries in international matches. However, later assessment reported that the injuries were not as serious as expected.

Now, Arsene Wenger has cheer us up further with news that Fabianski, Vela, Traore and Denilson have returned from injury. Now that Diaby is injured, who will replace him to play alongside Song and Fabregas in midfield?

Denilson? Wenger said that he would definitely be in the squad on Saturday, but it is unlikely that he will be in the first 11 as he is just returning to action after nine weeks out. Perhaps a late sub appearance. On a side note, I am really glad that Denilson is back, as he will need as many games possible before he fully takes on the DM role when Song goes for ACN in January.

I would say it will be either Nasri or Ramsey, and either one would do for me, as both are more capable than Diaby in creating opportunities and holding the ball (although I must say Diaby is a better goalscorer than the two).

Can't wait for the Sunderland game, it's so boring when international matches are being played...
