Arsenal's veteran manager Arsene Wenger has been handed a dual boost as two of his key players, Gervinho and Tomas Rosicky, are on the verge of completely recovering from their respective injuries. While Rosicky has not featured this season due to an Achilles injury, Gervinho has been out since Arsenal's match against QPR due to an ankle injury.
Wenger refused to put a timeline on Rosicky's return but sounded optimistic about Gervinho. Speaking about the Ivorian to the club's website, Wenger said, "He is still out [with an ankle problem]. He has a chance to be fit for next week."
Although the aforementioned duo will not be available for the match against arch rivals Tottenham, the news about their recovery is sure to boost the team's morale going into the North London Derby.
There is a lot at stake for the Gunners going into the game against Spurs, with many questioning their supremacy in the north of London. Moreover, Arsenal's season is in danger of taking a turn for the worse, with the club having failed to notch up a win in their last three games, which essentially means that a morale boost in the form of key players returning from injuries will be more than welcome.
