Alexis and Jack are ready and Rambo isn’t out forever.
Did I miss ten months and wake up at Christmas?
With Aaron Ramsey suffering his third hamstring strain of the season on Tuesday night against Leicester, it was easy to fear the worst.
Initial reports emerged that he would be out for a month, guesstimates plastered everywhere as the player waiting to learn the results of his scan.
Then on Thursday it was claimed that he will only be out for two weeks, a blow for sure, but more a Giroud headbutt than a Joey Barton one.
As if that wasn’t good enough news for one day, it was also revealed that Alexis Sanchez, the anti-Diaby of modern football, should be fit to play against Middlesbrough in the Cup on Sunday at the Emirates.
With Jack Wilshere also back in full training and possibly a surprise inclusion on Sunday as well, this is surely too much good news for Arsenal.
Or, maybe, just maybe, every returning player breaks Abou a little bit more.
The Injury Gods do demand their sacrifices, perhaps Diaby has made the ultimate one.
It would certainly explain where he went to.
