Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky came off the bench in the Gunners’ FA Cup fourth round win against Burnley on Saturday afternoon. A 2-1 home win was enough to send the holders into the next round, but Rosicky’s return is sure to steal the headlines.
The 35-year-old has been out of action all season with a knee injury, but has been training with the side and is slowly getting himself back to match fitness. Prior to this weekend’s return, Rosicky’s last appearance for Arsenal was against Sunderland back in May last year. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed long-serving midfielder Tomas Rosicky has returned to training this week, and could be available for selection in the coming weeks.

“We have Rosicky back in training so the situation is getting better. He will be back in full training this week, it is fantastic because he has been out for very long and it is good to know that a player of that calibre is back in our squad,” said Wenger in a recent press conference. .......Read more here.....

The Gunners are believed to be readying a £4.4 million bid for the 20-year-old midfielder, who has an £8.8 million release clause inserted in his contract.

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky is set to make his return from a long-term injury in the New Year, with manager Arsene Wenger revealing the Czech Republic international should be back in training inaround three weeks. It could be a big boost for the side in the second-half of the season given the lack of midfield options this campaign.
Rosicky hasn’t played a game for the Gunners in 2015/16, making his last league appearance all the way back in May last season. The injury-prone 35-year-old is far from a regular when fit, but does provide a useful option for Wenger due to his experience. A highly-industrious player, boasting a deft touch and high levels of creativity, Rosicky fits into the side like a glove, and could operate in a number of roles. .......Read more here.....

There have been plenty of bad news on the injury front for manager Arsene Wenger over the past few weeks, but it would appear that the situation is slowly getting better, with a couple of players returning to training.
There will be plenty of time for the injured footballers to recover during the international brea, but the Gunners first need to negotiate the North London derby against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
According to the Telegraph, centre-back Laurent Koscielny will be back in contention for the Spurs game, after Arsene Wenger didn’t want to risk him in the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been needlessly vague about Tomas Rosicky’s knee injury this season, which makes it hard for supporters to gauge how long the Czech Republic is out of action for. In mid-August, the playmaker was alleged to be out for eight weeks, but after the news of Danny Welbeck’s long-term injury broke, Wenger revealed Rosicky was undergoing the same surgery.
Welbeck isn’t expected to return until 2016, so Arsenal could be without Rosicky for the rest of the year based on comments made about the veteran. It’s a big loss for the Gunners given his industry and impressive creativity in possession, but its something the Londoners have become used to down the years as a result of the Czech international’s injury woes. .......Read more here.....

According to a study by Physioroom.com, Arsenal pair Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky feature in the Premier League’s all-time XI for most time spent on the sidelines through injury.
Former-Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby, not surprisingly really is also in the eleven. The Frenchman midfielder was released by Arsenal this summer after nine injury-plagued years in north London.
However, Walcott and Rosicky are still very much part of Arsenal’s current first team squad, although ironically Rosicky is currently out of action injured.
According to the statistics Diaby spent 2156 days out of action, while Rosicky has been sidelined for 1188 days and Walcott has spent 1030 out of action through various injuries. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal play host to Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday looking to claim back-to-back wins in the Premier League.
The Gunners have opened their Premier League campaign in inconsistent style, with one win and one defeat so far this season. Last time out an own goal from Damien Delaney was enough to earn Arsene Wenger’s men a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.
The win was a relief after the north London side kicked-off their Premier League campaign with a disappointing 2-0 home defeat against West Ham.
The Premier League head-to-head is very tight, with Arsenal claiming 16 wins to Liverpool’s 15 and 15 games finishing in draws. .......Read more here.....
