Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna could be back for Man City clash
— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) December 13, 2013
Bacary Sagna could make a surprise return to the Arsenal team for tomorrow’s game at Manchester City.
The right-back was expected to be ruled out of the game, but manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he faces a fitness test today to see if he can play.
Lukas Podolski is available for selection, but Wenger fears he is still too short of fitness to be involved.
He said: “Bacary Sagna will have a test today. Podolski is available but I feel he is a bit short.”
If Sagna passes his fitness test, it would be a major boost for the Gunners.
Many pundits had suggested his replacement, Carl Jenkinson, would be a weak link in the Arsenal defence that City would be able to exploit.
