Despite what everyone may be saying and that Nasri will be a Manchester City player this weekend, the fact remains that he is still an Arsenal play and is likely to play against Liverpool on Saturday.
Arsene Wenger said today, “The only thing I can say is that Nasri is in the squad tomorrow and available to be picked and play. One thing I don’t question is the commitment of Samir Nasri to this club.
“Transfers can happen, but every day since he has arrived here, and every day in pre-season, he has worked with fantastic spirit in training.”
No whether it is a good idea for him to play against Liverpool is another story. We are very thin right now in our squad as we have Gervinho and Song out suspended and then we have Wilshere, Diaby, Djourou, Traore and Gibbs also missing due to injury, so we need all the players we can get right now.
“At the moment I feel we are a bit short in midfield number-wise with Wilshere and [Abou] Diaby out. We are a bit short as well at the back, maybe.” said Wenger.
