Wenger’s team update ahead of Dortmund: Gervinho and Song back, Ramsey out injured!

Arsenal will today play their first group match in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund. Arsene Wenger on Monday gave an update on the squad that will be available today.

Speaking at his press conference, Wenger confirmed the ankle problem of Ramsey’s from Saturday’s game due to which he will not be available today. Rosicky, who was in-line to be back for today has also not recovered from his knee injury in time.  

Returning to the squad is Gervinho and Alex Song, who missed the game on the Saturday due to suspension. Jenkinson is also back from suspension but not included in the squad.

Arsene Wenger, on Monday, said:

“We have lost [Aaron] Ramsey from Saturday because he has an ankle problem but we have Gervinho and [Alex] Song back in the squad. [Tomas] Rosicky (knee) is still out, Jenkinson is back from suspension but he is not in the squad.

Aaron has been very influential in our team since the start of the season, but it is a good opportunity now to show that we have a big squad and cope with it. We have three midfielders out in [Abou] Diaby, [Jack] Wilshere and [Aaron] Ramsey, but we will still hopefully have a strong midfield tomorrow.”

Below is the squad that has travelled to Germany:

Andrey Arshavin
Mikael Arteta
Yossi Benayoun
Marouane Chamakh
Johan Djourou
Gervinho
Kieren Gibbs
Lukasz Fabianski
Emmanuel Frimpong
Laurent Koscielny
Per Mertesacker
Ju Young Park
Andre Santos
Bacary Sagna
Alex Song
Wojciech Szczesny
Robin van Persie
Theo Walcott

    Here we go again! !! Anothercrocked midfielder. But I am not worried, coz we have a wealth of able midfielders to fill in Ramsey’s shoes in Yossi, Arteta, Dos Santos and Park a striker who can double as an attacking MF. So cmon Gunners go for the three points
