Forgotten man and perennial injury absentee Abou Diaby made a timely return to action for Arsenal on Tuesday playing over 60 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly win against Brentford.
The match arranged at the London Colney training ground provided the perfect opportunity for Arsene Wenger to assess the fitness of a number of his recent crocked stars. Abou Diaby [thigh & calf] was joined by Mikel Arteta [ankle], Mathieu Debuchy [shoulder] and Jack Wilshere [ankle] with each playing at least a half. Although this weekend is likely to prove a little too early for the quartet – certainly in terms of a start – the good news is that for the first time [in a long while] Arsenal are making progress on the injury front. Both Aaron Ramsey [groin] and Tomas Rosicky [illness] should be fine for GW31 but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain [hamstring] and Danny Welbeck [knee] will continue to receive treatment ahead of the game.
