Wenger gives latest Arsenal injury update ahead of Everton trip
Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal could both return from injury for Arsenal's trip to Everton on Sunday
Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal could both be back available for selection for Arsenal’s crunch clash at Everton on Sunday, Arsene Wenger has revealed.
Ramsey has not featured for the north London side since picking up a thigh injury at West Ham United on Boxing Day but is in contention along with Monreal, who has been sidelined with a foot problem.
“Aaron and Nacho Monreal are back training with the squad, so that is good news,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website. “Hopefully they will be available for Sunday. [About] Diaby is back on the pitches, so that is good news.
Wenger also confirmed that Jack Wilshere (foot), Mesut Ozil (hamstring) and Laurent Koscielny (calf) all remain sidelined and will miss the trip to Merseyside.
“At the moment that is all because the other injured players are not back, not Wilshere, not Ozil. Everybody else is alright.
“[Koscielny] is still out. The earliest [he will be back] is next week, the latest is the week after.
“[Wilshere and Walcott] are alright, they are doing well. It is still early for them, of course for Theo the season is finished and Jack is progressing well.
“The FA Cup [semi-final against Wigan] will be too soon for [Ozil], but he will hopefully be back soon after that.”
