Manager Arsene Wenger has made adjustments to Arsenal’s training intensity in an attempt to reduce muscular and impact injuries.
The tweaked regime seems to be working as the north Londoners could be missing just ONE player from their squad against Tottenham on Saturday.
Having been criticised heavily in recent years for season-defining injury crises, Wenger is pleased with the turnaround.
“First of all, we rotated more in the Europa League and was able to rest more players,” he told told the official Arsenal website.
“Afterwards, you always improve by learning from the seasons before, you learn more about the general concept of our training intensity.
“We have a deeper analysis of what happened with the player last year, whether he got injured, how many games he played in three weeks and after he got injured.
“It’s about adapting the training loads to the history of the individuals.
“It’s also about strengthening where they’ve had weak moments in their history.
“When you play every three days, you weaken your players.
“After that, they’re a bit less vulnerable.”
The Evening Standard report that Nacho Monreal, Danny Welbeck and Petr Cech could be available for the North London Derby if the trio recover from various knocks in time.
