Ade, Sagna and Nasri Make Squad For Sunday

Emmanuel Adebayor, Bacary Sagna and Samir Nasri have been passed fit for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Chelsea after completing this morning’s training session at London Colney

All three were rated ’50-50′ by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after the Gunners’ 1-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday. Since then though, Ade, Bac and Sammy managed to pass a strenuous morning session which has brought them back into the Arsenal fold for Sunday’s crucial tie.

“We have no injuries from the Kyiv game and Adebayor, Nasri and Sagna will be available, if nothing bad happens in training tomorrow,” confirmed Wenger at his pre-match press conference.

“They all came through [training] well today. It’s good because we were experience-wise a bit short.”

Six players will still be missing from the weekends game with Abou Diaby, Theo Walcott, Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Eboue, Tomas Rosicky and Eduardo still unavailable – the latter whom, according to Young Guns, made his comeback in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Nottingham Forest yesterday afternoon.

    provided all are fit as you say chris i can see the line up being
    Almuni
    Sagna–Gallas–Silvestre–Clichy
    Denilson–Song–Cesc–Nasri
    Ade–RVP

    i think with song playing DM cesc was able to get forward and create alot more on tuesday.
    i don’t see bendtner getting a start despite scoring on tues, i think he is more effective coming on as a sub.

    Yeah thats a good formation but I’d say take out denilson and bring on wilshere (I know he’s young) or Ramsey. Denilson is muscled off the ball too easily.
