The captain of Arsenal, Thomas Vermaelen, has said that he will play in the match against Liverpool which is going to be played tomorrow.

Vermaelen didn’t feature for the Gunners in their last match against Brighton & Hove Albion because of the ankle injury. Vermaelen had discovered that injury while playing in the match against West Ham United last week. But, the skipper has confirmed that his ankle is fine now and he will return to action against the Reds tomorrow evening.

When asked about his fitness, Vermaelen said, “The injury that I had suffered against West Ham United wasn’t severe. I started training a couple of days back. I am feeling good and I will be available for selection in tomorrow’s match.”

“I had a bit of problem in my left ankle before as well. But, I kept playing with it and last week, it got worse. I landed on my left ankle while I was trying to make a clearance and I started feeling a lot of pain. But, now, it’s fine and I am looking forward to tomorrow’s game.”

Yesterday, the manager of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, had also confirmed the recovery of Vermaelen. When Wenger was asked about the injury of Gunners captain, he had said, “Thomas is fit now and it’s really good news for us. He will be back in the match against Liverpool.”

Arsene Wenger had decided to rest some of its key players in the FA Cup match against Brighton & Hove Albion. Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott had warmed the bench in that match. But, Wenger made it clear that all these players would be back against the Reds.

Arsenal had defeated Brighton & Hove Albion in a close match by 3-2.
