Arsene Wenger expects Denilson and Bendtner to report to base soon

Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger is very positive ahead of the forthcoming Premier League season with regards to his squad's fitness level.

The seasoned tactician believes the team's injured duo of Nicklas Bendtner and Denilson Neves won't miss the start of the new campaign, despite the fact that they have not travelled to Austria for this summer's pre-season training with the rest of the team: "Bendtner has a groin (injury) and Denilson has a groin (problem) as well." Wenger confirmed in an interview with Arsenal Tv Online.

"The injuries do not look big but at the moment they cannot fulfil full training sessions. They will be one week behind the rest (of the squad)."
