van Persie Fit For Arsenal, Silvestre a Maybe

van Persie Fit For Arsenal, Silvestre a Maybe

Robin van Persie is fit to face Man Utd in the massive clash at Ashburton Grove tomorrow night whilst Mikael Silvestre is in the squad but will be assessed tomorrow.

After assuring ourselves of Champions League football for another season on Saturday past, the huge match against Manchester United tomorrow will determine whether or not our seasons extends to the end of May or ends within 36 hours.

It's vital then that we have all our players fit, so it's great news to hear that Robin van Persie and Mikael Silvestre have made the squad for our biggest game since 2006.

"Robin van Persie is available and back in the squad, Mikael Silvestre is in the squad as well but he still has a little groin problem. We`ll assess that tomorrow.' Said the Arsenal gaffer.

"In a game like this, you want everybody available to give you an opportunity to make a decision."

"In a game like this, you want everybody available to give you an opportunity to make a decision." Hmm... I was hoping both Silvestre and Djourou would be available for Arsene to pick before the 1st leg, but I felt nervous when I saw it's Silvestre who got picked lol. Credit to him, he proved my worry was a bit premature. (Dare I say I wasn't the only one!) So yeah I'm all for options, but I'd still get nervous if I see Ade and/or Diaby starting lol. (Jinx jinx!)

I so happy that RvP will be fit to play, what a bonus, even having Silvestre in the squad, gives us choices.

Ditto to LD's plea!!! Lou: "So yeah I'm all for options, but I'd still get nervous if I see Ade and/or Diaby starting lol." If Diaby is put in the hole, I won't be so nervous, that's his natural position and he usually does very well there. If he's on the wing...I'll be mightily PO'd!! As for Ade...I keep hoping in his "next game" he'll shape up and fight like mad for his team like he used to. Surely the 2nd leg of a CL semifinal against the champions, at home, is the game to finally show us the Ade of old? He doesn't even have to score (tho that would be great), just fight and work hard and make the right decisions. And for the love of god, PLEASE don't break down our attacks by getting caught offside!
