Arsenal boosted by midfielder return from injury ahead of Liverpool clash

Arsenal have been boosted by the return of Tomas Rosicky to full training ahead of their clash against Liverpool on Wednesday, according to reports from the Mirror.

Rosicky has been sidelined for quite some time, not having played a single minute since the previous season.

However, the former Czech Republic international has given the Gunners a timely boost before their trip to Anfield, with the likes of Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, and Jack Wilshere still unavailable with respective problems.

One the other hand, the news will be a slight blow to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has a mountain of injured players before the Arsenal clash.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund gaffer has recently come out to slam the English football schedule, but Wenger dismissed claims that the frantic amount of games is bad for the country.

Wenger said: “If you look at the history of English football, it has always been frenetic, but it did not stop the English clubs winning the European Cups in the past.

“When I spoke to Pat Rice, who was my assistant, they played every day.

“They sometimes played in the replay of the FA Cup , sometimes four times [before times were limited to a single replay]. Today we cannot. You can’t explain every defeat just by fixture congestion — the national team, I mean.

“I believe that for the Germans they are maybe more surprised as they have a good winter break.

“But let’s not forget they are 18 clubs only [in the Bundesliga], so that is four games less. And they have no League Cup, so that is a few games less.”

Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League table, and a win against the Merseyside Reds will guarantee them being at least two points ahead of the pack.
