Arsenal team news is in, and the Gunners will be with Francis Coquelin and Tomas Rosicky against Burnley on Saturday.
Coquelin hasn’t featured since suffering a knee injury against West Bromwich Albion in November, while 35-year-old Rosicky is yet to play this season. Both, however, are fit and available for selection on Saturday.
The fourth round of the FA Cup sees Championship side Burnley travel to the Emirates Stadium, where they lost 3-0 in the Premier League last season. Arsenal already saw Alexis Sánchez return last weekend so adding to two more players to the squad is a huge boost.
“Francis is available to play now because he has passed two weeks of full training. Tomas is also available for selection,” Arsène Wenger told Arsenal.com.
Rosicky played for the u21s last Friday and proved his fitness. With a Premier League game against Southampton on Tuesday night, Arsenal will need as many players as possible available. The Premier League title race is wide open, and having a deep squad will be crucial to keeping our best players fit for as long as possible.
As for this weekend, it’ll be great to see players returning as we approach a full complement. Hopefully it’s a successful afternoon as we continue our defence of the famous old trophy.
