Arsène Wenger has confirmed that Kieran Gibbs will return to the Arsenal squad for this weekend's trip to Everton.
The England international has managed just 19 minutes of first-team football since September 28 after suffering a knee problem at Newcastle last month on his return from a foot injury.
Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday that Gibbs "could" be back for Sunday's game. At his pre-match press conference he firmed up those plans and gave an update on Abou Diaby's ankle complaint.
"We have the same players available [from the Wolves game]," said Wenger. "Kieran Gibbs is back in the squad but we will see tomorrow [whether he plays].
"The first tests [on Diaby's ankle] are quite encouraging. We had the ball today. I don’t know how he reacted but yesterday and the day before the tests were positive.
"At the moment we have to be patient and go day by day."12 Nov 2010
