In today's pre-match press conference, manager Arsene Wenger let the media know who will be fit for tomorrow's tilt against the Fightin' Potters of Stoke City. There's a mix of good and bad news that is what we've grown accustomed to for the last couple of years of Arsenal injury reports. Here's the rundown.
Nacho Monreal: Out for tomorrow's game, which Wenger is characterizing as a "bad surprise."
It's likely that Kieran Gibbs will be available, giving Arsenal a starter at left back who normally plays in the left back position.
Laurent Koscielny, who made his return from an Achilles injury just this past week, will be a game-time decision tomorrow.
Wojciech Szczesny is on the mend! He might be available for tomorrow's match, though from the sound of it, we're likely still in the Emiliano Martinez Era.
Theo Walcott is still fighting a groin injury, and there is talk of an injection, which sounds painful. There's also talk that he'll be available for Tuesday's Champions League group match finale at Galatasaray.
Mathieu Debuchy, whose leg fell off against Manchester City back in September, is in full training, and could feature as soon as Tuesday.
PROBABLE MINOR SADNESS
Veteran Tomas Rosicky and newly-prolific goal scoring machine Yaya Sanogo are likely out with various leg ailments (though, in reality, they probably weren't going to feature against Stoke anyhow).
