The returns of Tomas Rosicky and Eduardo are in a “positive” situation according to Arsène Wenger.

Although the Croatian striker has had the nastier injury — a fractured leg and open dislocation to his ankle suffered at Birmingham in late February — the Czech midfielder’s hamstring problem has kept him sidelined for longer. Rosicky was last seen in an Arsenal shirt when he limped off after 10 minutes against Newcastle on January 26.

Both players continued their rehabilitation at Members’ Day on Tuesday. After their session, their manager seemed content with their progress.

“The situation is positive for both players,” said Wenger. “We believe Tomas could be available in September and Eduardo maybe in November.

“Also it was good for them to be back in this kind of atmosphere. The players enjoy a day like that.”
