Wayne Hennessey: Due back after 14-month lay-off

Hennessey has not featured at first-team level for 14 months after twice injuring cruciate knee ligaments.

He will return to full training with the rest of the squad next week but new boss Jackett has vowed to nurse him back into competitive action.

"In terms of Wayne we are going to have to monitor what he does and take it every day," Jackett told the club's official website.

"We will have to be very careful with him but basically he is confident and he is good to go.

"We will monitor his situation and treat him with kid gloves to make sure he gets through the pre-season period."

Razak Boukari, who has had surgery on his troublesome calf, is set to be the only player sidelined when his team-mates return for fitness testing on Monday.

"I think Razak is the only one who isn't likely to start pre-season," Jackett added. "Apart from Razak everybody is there or thereabouts."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
