I have to keep things very quick this morning so I thought it best just to include Arsene Wenger’s comments from his weekly press conference regarding player availability for Chelsea on Sunday.
“I don’t know [about Cesc]. It looks a 50:50 but a 50:50 balancing on the negative side. I will find out on Saturday morning.”
“[Almunia] is even more difficult. He has not been in a regular training session. So I will see.”
“Vermaelen – no. Abou Diaby has an 80 per cent chance to be involved. I am not sure if he will be completely 100 per cent but it is 100 per cent he will be in the squad.”
I’ll have a full preview of the Chelsea game in tomorrow’s post.
In the meantime here’s some great reading from The Guardian: Six great Arsenal v Chelsea games.
