Nasri Fit For Fulham Tie, Song and Silvestre Could Play

Midfield maestro Samir Nasri will play against Fulham despite sustaining a thigh injury whilst on International duty for France.

Gooner Talk told you two days ago that Samir Nasri would be fit for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham and the official site have now confirmed it.

New-boy Mikael Silvestre could also be involved while Alex Song has only recently jetted back to London after taking part in the Olympics for Cameroon but he might be drafted in for the trip to Craven Cottage.

“I am not sure about Silvestre as he has a little muscular problem, but Song is [in the squad],” said Wenger at his pre-match press conference.

“Well Cesc is doing very well in training,” said Wenger. ” He won’t be ready for Saturday but has a chance to be ok for Wednesday. We don’t want to gamble on him for one game, we have to be patient.”

“[Abou] Diaby doesn’t look too far away and hopefully there will be good news on [Tomas] Rosicky in the next two weeks.”

The current players out injured are:

Eduardo (leg)
Philippe Senderos (hamstring),
Cesc Fabregas (hamstring),
Abou Diaby (thigh),
Amaury Bischoff (groin),
Tomas Rosicky (hamstring)

A match preview will appear on the blog tomorrow afternoon while you can catch all the post-match action immediately after full time with our match report.
