Egypt's midfielder Mohamed Elneny has recovered from an ankle injury that sidelined him for the past three weeks and will be ready to play for Arsenal against West Brom on Saturday.

"Elneny has joined again so apart from the long term injuries we should have everybody available. Elneny looked at the start a very bad ankle injury but he has recovered well and is keen to come back as quickly as possible," coach Arsene Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

The 24-year old midfielder suffered an ankle injury during the Gunners FA Cup win over Sutton on 20 February.

He has been struggling with injuries since the beginning of the year, missing three games with the Pharaohs during the Africa Cup of Nations in January-February after sustaining a calf injury.

Meanwhile, Wenger is still sweating on the fitness of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs who will face tests to check on their availability for the game.
