Danny Welbeck could be handed his first start since May when Arsenal play Southampton in the FA Cup this weekend.
The news, which comes from the Evening Standard who seem to be relatively reliable when it comes to team news, is a nice boost in what has been a very shouty week so far.
I’d love to think that this will make headlines. A talented footballer who has suffered serious back-to-back injuries returning. But as Wenger hasn’t responded to the FA charge against him (he has until 6pm, Thursday to do so) and people want to see him punished more severely than anyone ever, that won’t happen.
It’s interesting to note that the Standard also claim Wenger wanted to give Welbeck more time against Burnley but was unable to do so because of Xhaka’s red card.
So many things are intertwined in football, we rarely ever stop to appreciate them all, eh?
