Double boost for Arsenal

Tomas Rosicky - ArsenalPer Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky will return for Arsenal against Everton tonight, but Lukasz Fabianski misses out.

Rosicky was forced to sit out the 3-1 victory over Norwich at the weekend with a hamstring problem but Wenger says it is not a serious one and he is back in the squad that takes on the Toffees.

Mertesacker had to serve a one-match suspension against the Canaries but also comes back in contention which means Thomas Vermaelen could again be on the bench while Nacho Monreal could return at left-back after being rested.

However Fabianski looks certain to miss out after taking a knock at the weekend.

“Fabianski is a major doubt but we will decide that tomorrow [Tuesday],” Wenger revealed in his pre-match press conference. “He got a kick in the rib.”

Meanwhile, Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski are both pressing for a recall after coming off the bench against Norwich, but midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
