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.

im very pleased there back, especially rosicky but i feel hes such an important player im not sure if we should rush him back into the starting 11, and can anyone tell me why wenger has decided to rest the beast, he has hardly played surely he needs time on the pitch not a rest??
28/11/2006 18:27:00
...he wants him hungry for Spurs no doubt...
28/11/2006 18:39:00
lol i wanna see the beat control jenas and zokora

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
28/11/2006 19:41:00
so if we rest cesc, who will take his place, well have to play flamini again.
28/11/2006 19:42:00
Denilson. The boy looks quality.

rvp got 5 bookings... pretty embarrassing for a front man...
28/11/2006 20:21:00
denilson is class, and rosicky could play centre aswell with RVP & walcott out wide.

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
