'He obviously isn't full-match-fit because he's had three weeks of inactivity, but what we feel - and what he feels and what the medical people feel - is that he could get through a game of football without starting it, or for an hour or 45 minutes, without a recurrence of that injury.
'He's named in the squad and he will train with the group and providing there's no reaction, he'll be involved at some stage. He's more than 50-50, unless he gets a reaction, and he's done everything but have a game of football, really.'
Take from that what you can. Not that you were likely to put him in v the Arsenal anyway.
