Arsene Wenger reveals that Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen is available to play against Chelsea this weekend.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Thomas Vermaelen is back to full fitness and available for selection against Chelsea this weekend.

The Arsenal captain missed last weekend's 1-1 draw against Manchester City through illness, with his replacement Laurent Koscielny scoring a late equaliser at the Etihad.

Wenger told a pre-match press conference: "Vermaelen is available again for selection.

"Apart from that, I think from last Sunday at Man City and from Wednesday night we have only good news because everyone should be available for Saturday's game."

Wenger also has Bacary Sagna, Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong back in full training as the Gunners look to build on their unbeaten start to the season.
