Ramsey, Monreal back in contention

RAMSEY-DOUBLEArsenal manager Arsene Wenger is excited by the prospect of Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal returning to the fray ahead of this weekend’s Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton at Goodison Park.

Wenger and his Arsenal team have encountered considerable adversity during the second half of this season and that has been thanks in part to the long casualty list at the club.

Ramsey, who has been grappling with a thigh strain for a protracted period, and Monreal (ankle) are already back in training and there are strong indications they will feature this weekend.

“Aaron [Ramsey] and Nacho Monreal are back in the squad, so that is good news. Hopefully they will be available for Sunday. [Abou] Diaby is back on the pitches, so that is good news,” Wenger told the club’s website on Thursday.

In addition there are also indications that Laurent Koscielny will return sooner rather than later, which is also welcome news for Wenger, who hopes the player will be ready for the FA Cup semi-final fixture against Wigan Athletic later this month.

“He is still out,” Wenger said of the Frenchman.

“The earliest [he will be back] is next week, the latest is the week after.”
