Tomas Rosicky is back among main options on Wenger’s drawing board ahead of games.
The Czech midfielder ended a long absence from football since January 2008 by starting for his country in the recent international break and has made consecutive appearances including a start in Arsenal’s last three fixtures.
Since his comeback, Wenger has been ever-cautious about handing Rosicky playing time due to fears over his fitness.
But after racking up over 182 minutes of football action so far, the boss is now confident about the 28-year-old’s fitness.
“I am very positive. Touch wood his problem is sorted. He had not played a game for 18 months. Now he has played with the Czech Republic and us. I did not leave him out today because I was cautious. He was ready to play and for me he looks completely over his injury.” Wenger siad.
