Arsene Wenger’s latest injury update, Miyaichi, Nasri, Frimpong and Jenkinson set to start against Liverpool

Arsene Wenger on Friday gave the latest update on the squad that will face Liverpool today.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Arsene confirmed that Diaby, Wilshere and Gibbs will miss the game due to injury along with Song and Gervinho, who are suspended.

In an update on Djourou and Traore, who had positive tests on Thursday, the manager said that they won’t also be available. Djourou is out with a minor hamstring strain while Traore has a slight groin problem.

Rosicky, whose inclusion was pending a late decision on Thursday, will also be given a rest against Liverpool due to a thigh injury. However, he will be back with the squad by Monday as according to the manager the injury is not bad.

Meanwhile, Wenger announced, Japanese sensation, Miyaichi, and want away midfielder, Nasri, are available and included in the squad.  

Frimpong will also be in contention to start as Wenger admitted his likeness for the youngster and his ability and added only his injury proved a hindrance or he would have played last year.

Wenger also hinted at a possible start for Jenkinson after praising his performance against Udinese.

Arsene Wenger, ahead of the game against Liverpool, said:

“The morale is strong and the belief is strong. I believe we have had a decent start. We have Song and Gervinho suspended. Diaby and Wilshere are injured. Djourou and Traore will not be available and Gibbs will not be available.

We will give Tomas a rest tomorrow. It is not a bad injury and he should be back with us on Monday but he is rested tomorrow.

He [Ryo Miyaichi] came back from Japan yesterday and is in the squad. He [Samir Nasri] is in the squad tomorrow and available to be picked to play.

Frimpong will be in contention when I pick my team tomorrow morning. I like him very much. He is a fighter, he is strong in the duels, has fantastic levels of commitment and he uses the ball well with his feet. He was one of the players who dominated pre-season last year with Jack Wilshere and was stopped through a cruciate. I think he would have played last year.

Jenkinson did really well at left-back the other night [against Udinese]. I believe that he will have an impact and you will fight for him not to play for Finland.”

    Morning all,
    Yes, at the moment we have a number of players injured, plus the two suspended, the next three games will be very testing for us, The younger players will be called upon, where Arsene would have prefered to have introduced them slower, but when there is a need, i am sure these youngsters will be ready to to pull the red and white over their heads. We have not started our season off in the best way, after our initial start to the season against Newcastle, ended with one player sent off , and earning himself a 3 match suspension, and Alexander Song to also be suspended for 3 games after video evidence, makes me feel that someone somewhere has it in for us, we have also got players injured after only a couple of games, it never rains but it pours.But we have a fairly big squad and now is the time for those players to do their bit, Wenger is juggleing the players round, and will field a competetive team, not our best i must admit, but they will go out there this afternoon, and if they fight as they did in both the Newcastle and Udenese games, they will return a result, i noticed that Ryo is being included in todays game, will he be better protected than Gervinho was in he’s first game for us, i suppose we will just have to wait and see, COYG
