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.
