Friday was mainly about the gossip, despite our Premier League match with Leicester just around the corner.
Firstly, let’s cover the real stuff.
Ahead of our match against Leicester, we woke up to the great news that Danny Welbeck could be back in action by Christmas. Arsene Wenger thinks it’ll be the new year but we love a bit of optimism around here. Ozil, Giroud and Kos all trained ahead of our trip on Saturday.
Claudio Ranieri got a bit mouthy. Well, not really, but he thinks he has the ‘solutions’ to beat Arsenal after we were the only side to take all six points from them last season.
Petr Cech practically blames his minor car incident on Liverpool. Sort of. Well, I would too, to be honest.
Gossip-wise, we explained how Riyad Mahrez did *not* turn down Arsenal; one of our ‘targets’, Simon Kjaer, picked up an injury; Emanuele Giulianelli said Mustafi will have his Arsenal medical on Monday, so he probably won’t; Tony Pulis appeared open to Jonny Evans leaving West Brom and we were quoted between €55-57m for Atletico Madrid centre-back, José Giménez.
