Arsenal team news for Boleyn

petr-cechArsenal Keeper Petr Cech is set to return for the clash against the Irons tomorrow.

The former Chelsea stopper injured his calf in a defeat to Swansea in March and he has not played since, but he was an unused substitute against Watford last weekend and is now fully fit.

He is set to take over from David Ospina’s but beyond that the isitors are likely to be unchanged for a crucial match to both clubs.

Alex Iwobi has been starting for Arsene Wenger’s side and the 19-year-old should again be on the left wing. Danny Welbeck started ahead of Olivier Giroud last weekend and the Englishman is expected to keep his place.

Defensively Gabriel will keep Per Mertesacker out of the side. Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini are fit and they could return to the first-team squad, but the midfield pairing of Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny are expected to start.

  1. Going to be a toughie tomorrow.Typical Gooners,bottle it,blow it & then when they can’t win the league they start playing good footie again

  2. We have better quality players sitting on the bench,
    Carroll should start Gabriel won’t stay on the pitch or cope,
    Song would also be good in this game
    Cech is no better then any other keeper this season
    Only problem is Wellbeck gets lucky against us every time,
