If not, I said, “My predictions: Welbeck still out, Wilshere still out but close, Rosicky obviously still out, hopefully no ill-effects from the game against Palace last week”.
He has now been out of action for four months and is not likely to be back in full training for at least another fortnight. So I will take the latest positive update posted on the Arsenal website with a pinch of salt if you don´t mind. However when fit, Rosicky usually puts in impressive performances, and that prompts Wenger to renew his contract – usually by a year or two as he did back in May, as per ESPN FC.
“We believe that is too optimistic to think that he will be available for England”. And perhaps the fact that the manager was more specific on this player tells us that he really knows what is going on and is confident that the medical team are on top of it.
“And we have no suspensions”.
Last term Arsenal tore Liverpool apart at the Emirates Stadium with a 4-1 win and Wenger still has fond memories of his side’s display, although he would rather such glamour games be played further into the season. “Wilshere should be the first back from those players, he is making good progress”.
“After the global break he has a chance, but before the worldwide break he has no chance”.
