Wenger’s injury update ahead of Bolton: Ramsey, Sagna and Rosicky back, Benayoun out!

Arsenal host Bolton today at The Emirates after the midweek win against Shrewsbury in the Carling Cup. Arsene Wenger gave the latest injury update ahead of the game on Friday.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the manager gave positive news on Aaron Ramsey and Bacary Sagna’s scheduled tests. Both passed their tests and are included in the squad to face Bolton. Tomas Rosicky, who has been out since the International break, is also back in the squad.

Meanwhile, Yossi Benayoun who scored his first goal for Arsenal on Tuesday will be out at least for a week with a thigh strain. Johan Djourou will join him on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.

Both of them will be missing today’s game plus the midweek clash in the Champions League against Olympiacos. They have an outside chance against Tottenham next week.

Arsene Wenger on Friday, said:

“[Tomas] Rosicky is back in the squad. [Bacary] Sagna and [Aaron] Ramsey had positive tests this morning, so overall it is alright.

[Yossi] Benayou has a thigh strain and [Johan] Djourou has a hamstring [problem]. Both of them are very minor muscular problems.

They could play with a risk of making it worse. But we will not take the gamble. As I told you, we only play players when they are 100 per cent.

Both of them are out with muscular problems in the short term. One week so Bolton and Olympiacos for sure. They have an outside chance to play against Tottenham”

    good news. As for Johan, i don’t know why AW keeps holding on this player, he hasn’t got what it takes to be an Arsenal player…he should be playin elsewhere…its now time for Miguel to have a chance to gain experience.

    Goodnews that sagna,ramsey, and rosicky are back to face bolton,but for djourou, i don’t think that guy fit to be an Arsenal player again,he should be offloaded in the january transfer window…

    Am just happy Sagna is back.. As for Djourou,i just wonder why we forget so soon. This is a player who nobody ever gave any chance last season..but he turned out to be arsenal’s saviour for the greater part of last season when our dear Vermalene was out injured. Have u forgotten how he stopped Drogba from continuing his scoring record against Arsenal? He’s just hasn’t found fitness for the season..when he finally does..i trust he can do the job better than Mr.Kochielny.. (that’s my opinion though)
