Arsenal Manager Can Choose From A Fully Fit Squad For Crucial North London Derby Against Tottenham

Emirates squad in good shape ahead of trip to White Hart Lane.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be able to choose from a virtually full-strength squad to face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane tomorrow.

Only goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Thomas Vermaelen, who is back in full training, will not be risked.

It is a crucial game for the Gunners who need the three points to keep up the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester United.

At present United lead the way by six points with six games remaining but could strecth their lead with victory away to Newcastle United tonight.

Bacary Sagna, Manuel Almunia (both knee), Denilson (toe) and Tomas Rosicky(illness) have all been passed fit to face Tottenham.

Alex Song is also available after coming off the bench during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool last Sunday.

“Basically on the injury news it is all going well,” Wenger told the club’s website. “Sagna should be back in the squad and everybody else is alright.

“(Almunia and Denilson) will not be in the squad but they are available. Almunia is back in normal training, Denilson as well.

“It is more a question of decisions, of choice.

“Thomas is still not competitive but he works very hard and we can give him a competitive edge in training because it takes a while.

“Thomas is a player who works very hard, he wants always to improve and he will get that from training.”

“There was a doubt about his (Alex Song) knee but he should be alright to be available,” added Wenger. “He says he is now completely ready.

“We have now three midfielders – Wilshere played many games, Diaby and Song – so we will rotate a little bit from game to game.”
