Chicharito out again – Arnautovic back

Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that neither Manu Lanzini or Samir Nasri will be available for the clash with Leicester City at the weekend.

ClaretandHugh had explained earlier in the week that neither would be playing a part this week but the manager has also added Chicharito to the list of absentees.

Speaking at his pre-match presser he said: “For this week I think that Manuel Lanzini and Samir Nasri will not be available. Also, Javier Hernandez has a problem with his ear so he couldn’t work during these last days.

“The other players, Jack Wilshere is okay, he worked without problem, and the other long injuries, Carlos Sanchez also worked with the squad, so we continue with long injuries of Winston Reid, Yarmolenko and Andy Carroll.

“Marko worked normally the whole week.”

Pellegrini believes  Wilshere could make a return to first team action soon and says the team could do with his presence in the middle of the park.

He declared: “We’ll see tomorrow how he feels. He’s played already one game for the U23s. We’ll talk with him but it’ll be soon. This week or next week. He’ll play some games before the end of the season.

“I think he’s a midfielder that we need because in that position we have so many times all of those injuries. The return for Jack to the team will be a good injection for the team.”

  1. Great news Mr Toxic back, hopefully he will put in a shift and earn his inflated wages. I have noticed that some of our best performances in 2019 have been when Arnie is not involved.
