Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has declared that midfielder Francis Coquelin has recovered sufficiently from his pre-season ankle injury to be included in the side for the Week 2 match against Stoke City.
Coquelin picked up a relatively minor ankle injury during the pre-season but appears to have recovered from that injury. It seems that, regardless of his health, he is currently considered a reserve at the base of midfield behind Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey. He may be behind Mohamed Elneny in the pecking order as well but that is less clear. The expectation should be that Coquelin only starts in the event of an injury to either Xhaka or Ramsey and that he will likely be used to close out matches where Xhaka has picked up a yellow card heading into the final 20 or 30 minutes.
