Arsène Wenger has revealed he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s visit of Fulham.
Apart from a minor setback to Manuel Almunia (elbow), who will miss the game, the manager confirmed that Samir Nasri and Sebastien Squillaci (both knee) will both be available for selection when he met the media at the Club’s training ground on Friday.
Wenger also confirmed that captain Cesc Fabregas is still missing (hamstring) along with long-term absentees Thomas Vermalen (Achilles) and Abou Diaby (ankle), though he did have an update on the progress of the former.
“The team news is that we have everybody available and not Almunia who had a little setback in training yesterday and is out of it,” said the Frenchman. “But apart from that, of course Fabregas, Vermaelen, Diaby are out.
“The first signs [for Fabregas] look quite good. I still think two weeks. I don’t know [whether he will be available for the Manchester United game].
“At the moment [Vermaelen] is in a boot and we have to wait until he comes out of that to see if he has a reaction.”
