About Diaby

Arsenal will take on Hull City at the KC Stadium in the Premier League on Monday.

The Arsenal players were training on Sunday ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash against Hull City away from home.

The Gunners will head into the encounter at the KC Stadium on the back of a goalless draw with London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side will be determined to return to winning ways against Hull and continue their push for a second-place finish in the Premier League this season.

Among the players in training at London Colney on Sunday was 28-year-old French midfielder Abou Diaby.

Diaby has struggled with injuries over the past couple of years and has yet to make an appearance in the Premier League this campaign.

The former Auxerre star has been training with the Arsenal first team for a while now, but he is not match-fit and may not play against Hull.

“We have a full squad available, the only one who is really a doubt is Mathieu Debuchy,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website last week.

“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is not completely ready, nor Diaby, but they both practice in full training sessions now. We have no major injuries apart from Debuchy.”

Diaby, who has been on the books of Arsenal since 2006, is out of contract at the end of the season, and no new deal has been agreed upon by the two parties yet.
