Noble injury update

Mark Noble looks unlikely to be involved in the Wolves match on Saturday having only returned to training earlier today (Thurs).

The captain has been suffering a back problem which he struggled with for parts of last season and with so many options at his disposal the manager seems unlikely to involve him at this stage.

And with Carlos Sanchez performing so well against Arsenal last weekend it now  seems inconceivable that he would make way anyway

Jack Wilshere was rested entirely on Tuesday evening which suggests the manager – knowing  his injury record – that three games in eight games would be too much for the midfielder.

The manager also revealed that Marko Arnautovic had a small problem with his knee last Saturday but has been working all week although he didn’t confirm that he would be a definite starter.

He added: “There are small things. For the moment though, we don’t have any problems.”

  1. Excellent news

    • I just KNEW that’d be your response bubbles🤣🤣
      This ‘back problem’, all a little convenient imo.

  2. Should try Sanchez and Obiang as a midfield two, see if that is the key to a more stable platform in midfield COYI!!!

    • I’ve always liked Obi-One, but after Tuesdays display I’m not too sure he actually wants to be with us any more 32.
      I’ve nothing to back that up, but his demeanour didn’t seem right to me.
      Think I’d go for bubbles suggestion of Rice and Sanchez.

  3. How about Rice and Sanchez or Obiang .
