The much in-form Arsenal was eliminated from the Carling Cup last night after Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea scored 2-0 against them. Wenger chose to bench influential players like Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud.
However, there is good news for you if you are a Gooner: Lukas Podolski is close to returning. The German star posted on his Twitter that he will hopefully be running on Monday.
The player has managed a good recovery and if he begins training from Monday, he will return soon enough.
He could return as soon as in a week and he could soon get some playing time.
The depth lacking in the Gunners’ squad is a result of persistent injuries of their main men like Podolski, Walcott, Chamberlain and Flamini. The Gunners really need to remain consistent if they are to end their trophy drought this season and manage one trophy.
