Nice to see we're rotating our injuries properly - as Ramsey and Giroud return, so we say farwell to Lucas perez for a few weeks.
Cazorla and Monreal are also doubtful, along with Walcott, although none of their injuries are serious - 'muscular issues' we're told.
The return of Ramsey and giroud will nevertheless give the manager a few options both upfront and in midfield. His team selection for Sunderland will be interesting given that we're also playing away in Europe on Tuesday evening in what could be the game that confirms our qualification for the knockout phase of the Champions League.
Forgetting Europe for a while, three points this weekend are vital following the bore draw against Boro last weekend.
Let's just hope the lads are up for it.
