Wenger gives latest Arsenal injury update ahead of Tottenham clash
Midfielder Mathieu Flamini could return for Arsenal's showdown with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday
Mathieu Flamini could return for Arsenal’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Arsene Wenger has revealed.
The French midfielder has been out of action with a dead leg but is in line to be ready for Spurs’ visit to Emirates Stadium.
Wenger said: “The only difference compared to Villa and Southampton is that Mathieu Flamini might be available again. He had a dead leg. I feel he should be back.”
The Arsenal boss also confirmed that Nacho Monreal remains sidelined with a back problem.
“Everyone else is similar to where they were,” Wenger added. “Monreal is not back yet. The likes of [Olivier] Giroud, [Mathieu] Debuchy and [Theo] Walcott are unavailable.”
Arsenal head into the clash looking to make it back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season after their victory at Aston Villa last weekend.
