Diaby To Make Return At Liverpool

Diaby To Make Return At Liverpool

Arsene Wenger today confirmed Abou Diaby's inclusion in the Arsenal squad to face Liverpool in tomorrow'a Carling Cup quarter final.

Diaby has been out of action since last April after suffering a broken ankle at the hands, or should I say feet of Sunderland's Dan Smith with only seconds remaining in a game that was far beyond doubt.

Now after all the waiting and hard work, Abou is finally ready to play.

Wenger gave the news (as well as other injury news) in his pre-match press conference.

'We have Diaby in the squad for the first time and Emmanuel Adebayor is very strongly coming back. Blackburn is possible for him,' said Wenger.

'Lauren is not in the squad for Liverpool, he has a small toe injury. William Gallas will not play either. But basically the only real injury is Ljungberg, he needs one more week after Blackburn.'

'That is why I said for a long time that I won't buy anyone [in the transfer window]. I knew I had enough players when they came back from injury.'

My only gripe would be that he chose to return on a night when I'm working lates so I'll miss the game.

Lets hope for extra time eh so your esteemed editor may witness the return of the highly rated Abou Diaby.

would be nice to see Abou for a wee while tomorrow night, but I would gladly wait a bit longer if he was a bit short of preparation. But I'm sure Le Gaffer got it all sussed... »»Arsene Knows««

Once the third goes in before half time I think we should give him 45 mins

anon 1. If you win tonight, and i hope you do, what makes you think you'll play the reserves against Spurs? The way i see it is although you always put out 2nd string in the carling - the chance of a final may mean a different approach. On top of that, Wenger having lost only once against us, would surely rather keep the psychological grip over Spurs, and not risk losing - even if it is only with a reserve side. so i reckon he may wheel out the big guns. Especially if he needs to in the 2nd leg.
