Wilshere and Walcott could return for Arsenal’s clash with Norwich
Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have an "outside chance" of being fit for Arsenal's Premier League clash with Norwich
Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have an “outside chance” of being fit for Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Norwich on 13 April.
Wilshere has not featured for the Gunners since the 2-1 defeat by Tottenham at the start of March due to an ankle issue, while Walcott has not played since picking up a groin injury on international duty with England.
Assistant manager Steve Bould admits that this weekend’s game at West Bromwich will come too soon for the England duo – but he is hopeful they will be involved a week on Saturday.
“We have good news with both of them,” said Bould. “Jack and Theo are outside running, and have an outside chance of being involved against Norwich a week on Saturday.
“Nacho [Monreal] has recovered well from his knee problem from the impact of the post and has trained the last couple of days so is available for the weekend.
“We just have Ryo [Miyaichi] and Abou [Diaby] out for the long-term so things are looking good in terms of availability.”
