Arsenal have a set of crucial games coming up as they chase fourth finish in the league and also look to win the FA cup to end their trophy drought. Finally, some good news for the gunners regarding injuries, as three of their players are set to return to full fitness before the FA cup final against Hull City next month.
Mesut Ozil, Abou Diaby and Jack Wilshere are all set to return to first team action in next three weeks.
Wenger’s update on these three players.
On Mesut Ozil
“Ozil should be available for the weekend (against Hull City).”
On Abou Diaby,
“Abou is back in full training on Thursday. It’s very difficult to say [if he will play this season] because he has not played for over a year now, and it’s very difficult for me [to decide]. He looks physically fine, but he has to play one or two games before I consider bringing him back.”
On Jack Wilshere,
“Jack should start to jog this week. It is all going well, but we have to monitor him now day by day. I think the next three weeks will be very important for him.”

“It’s something which made me feel consoling and I wanted to dedicate my goal to the families involved.
