Return Of the Trio!

Return Of the Trio!

Three of Arsenal's most threatening attacking players are set to return tomorrow against Fulham. Thierry Henry, Robin Van Persie and Tomas Rosicky all missed the 3-1 defeat against Bolton at the weekend could all start on Tuesday.

Henry missed the trip to Bolton with a mysterious neck injury while Tomas Rosicky has been suffering from a hamstring injury and Van Persie was suspended.

Wenger gave the good news in his pre-match press conference: "Henry is back in the squad. Van Persie and Rosicky are back as well.

The return of the threesome means that Arsenal are now only three players shy of a full squad with Lauren, Diaby and Gallas still missing.

van Persie was banned for five bookings. Had he played I think he would have decked Davies and got sent off. Shouldn't play Cesc tomorrow, needs a rest and if he gets booked, he misses Chelsea. Wenger sees Baptista train every day, so if he thinks he needs a rest, I trust him.

rosicky is the key, he is the most attacking footballer in midfield i have seen in a long time and isn't afraid to shoot outside of the box. i don't like this walking the ball in

denilson is class, and rosicky could play centre aswell with RVP & walcott out wide.
