Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will be available for selection for their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace tomorrow, according to the Express.

The Frenchman suffered concussion after a clash of heads during last weekend's fixture against Norwich, and was forced to sit out of the mid-week loss against Borussia Dortmund as a result.

However Arsene Wenger today assured fans that the 29-year-old will make a return to first-team action this weekend, and insisted that leaving him out of the Champions League game was merely a precaution.

Wenger said: “Flamini is available. He had no basic injury - it was just a precaution.”

Flamini has been surprisingly influential since his summer return on a free transfer from AC Milan, and has been praised in many quarters for providing Arsenal with the tough spine they've been lacking over the last few seasons.

His acquisition was originally bemoaned by a large portion of the Gunners' faithful, who believed that re-signing Flamini, who left the club in 2008, showed a lack of ambition.

However now his return to action will likely be a cause for optimism for supporters, as his performance has been impressive thus far.
