Wenger gives latest Arsenal injury update ahead of Man United clash
Yaya Sanogo is available for selection ahead of Arsenal's clash with Manchester United on Wednesday
Yaya Sanogo is available for selection ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United on Wednesday, Arsene Wenger has revealed.
The 21-year-old striker has not featured for the Gunners since picking up a back injury in August but is set to be included in Wenger’s squad for the visit of the defending champions.
I think the Liverpool game was an accident and we want to treat it like that
Wenger also confirmed that Thomas Vermaelen (knee) and Aaron Ramsey (thigh) remain sidelined along with new signing Kim Kallstrom (back).
“We have no injuries from Saturday and we have Sanogo available as well,” said Wenger.
“Everybody else should be available for [the United game]. As well there are no comebacks, people like Vermaelen, Ramsey are still out.”
Wenger’s side head into Wednesday’s clash on the back of a 5-1 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday.
But the Frenchman has urged his side to forget about their thrashing on Merseyside and concentrate on beating the defending champions in north London.
“I think the Liverpool game was an accident and we want to treat it like that,” Wenger added.
“We tend to forget how good we are when you are not successful. We have worked very hard until now. These players deserve success.”
