Great news on AMN
All players ahead of schedule? Lol, when was the last time that happened?
Maitland-Niles back early, thank God. Needs to get those CM minutes ASAP.
Might see Kolasinac in the Europa League next week
What’s happened to Mav, been a write off this season so far
Kos in full training, fit for Pool?
I'm not sure if we'll play him in that game, he's coming back from such a nasty injury, even in two weeks time he won't be 100% I feel. I think it'll be a case of slowly easing him back in. Blackpool might be a possibility, tho I'm not even fully sure on that. We'll be very cautious with him, long term is the most important thing.
I hope we take our time with him. He is no spring chicken anymore, and I think we can afford to ease him back in.
We'll just have to wait and see who is going to end up in the first 11 against Liverpool.
Shame that this two won't return that soon, but I think that Kola is a good replacement for Monreal on the left, while Mavropanos wouldn't be starting matches in any case.
It's good to have Kos back, though.
Welbeck, Özil, Holding, Ramsey and now Mustafi all in recent weeks, whatever luck we were having on the injury front during the initial months seems to be gone now. Mustafi I hope isn't that serious because no matter what anyone says about him relying on Sokratis and a Koscielny who's just back from a major injury on an area that he's had a problem with for years, is pretty risky. Not sure I want to see Nacho play in a CB pairing too much either.
I have great expectations for Mavropanos. Mustafi would have been suspended for the next game so he has 10 days before the Tottenham cup game and if he misses that it will be 13 days before we play Burnley, hopefully he's all right for that.
Mavro actually trained with the group.
EDIT: I believe you can also see Smith-Rowe for a moment. Emery confirmed that they both trained with the team. Mustafi didn't.
Although, I would rather see him making an awesome tackle than scoring this golazo.
