Injury News: Arteta OK, Wilshere Might Be Back

Injury News: Arteta OK, Wilshere Might Be Back

Arsene Wenger has delivered his customary pre-match injury news update ahead of the critical clash against Liverpool tomorrow.

Arsenal`s well documented injury list has always been a great source of scrutiny before each match as we wait with baited breath for news of who is, and isn`t, alright to play.

Jack Wilshere was missing from the 2-0 over Crystal Palace last week but Wenger says he should be ok for tomorrow`s massive game. He also gave Mikel Arteta the all clear after the Spaniard was seen limping towards the end of the Palace match.

The team news is basically similar to the squad that was available in our last game against Crystal Palace. We might have Wilshere back and that's basically it." Said Wenger in his pre-match presser.

"It's important to have as many players back as possible in the squad. In the big games it is always decided by having the complete squad available. As many top players as possible because most of the time these games are decided by players who come on or strong players who have a big statement in a big game."

On Mikel Arteta "He`s alright."

Jack would be a great inclusion against Liverpool but I suspect. Would only be coming on from the bench since he hasn't played much in the last few weeks. So the team shape should be pretty much as it was in our last game with the possible inclusion of Rosicky for Poldi and Jack to come on late on for some game time.

Don't be surprised if wilshere starts ahead of rosicky as arteta's partner cos the boss seems to like playing him despite the added threat of jack losing possesion in our half and costing us a goal. I don't think jack should be starting the big games yet as he still has the occasional brain farts.

I hope Wilshere starts, I think we need his runs from deep to help open up Liverpool. His energy is also needed to close down Liverpool players and help us control the midfield. He was awful against Citeh earlier this season and definitely still has some maturing to do as a player but the only way he will learn is by playing in big games like this. Wilshere and Areta playing the central midfield roles with the Ox and Cazorla on the wings. We need to play our usual game of being patient and keeping it tight at the back and then nicking a goal on the counter. The liverpool defence might be weak but they are the best attacking team after Citeh in the league so we can't be too gung ho or we'll get punished.

Bowiecokemirror, it looks like you've got your wish as wilshere takes poldi's place in the starting line up. Hope he doesn't go on his superman runs that see him running into two or three players and losing the ball.

I don't think he will let us down, he's an intelligent player and will have learned a lot from the game against City where he put in a very poor undisciplined performance.
