The Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is so eager to start playing again after seven months out with injury that he will be involved in Wednesday's Capital One Cup tie at home to Coventry City even though his manager admits he is not quite ready. The midfielder damaged cruciate ligaments in February while on loan at Wolves and will be on the bench for tonight's third-round tie. "Ideally we should have waited a bit longer to include him again," said Arsène Wenger, "but once you're back, you want so much a chance to be involved. So I want to give him a chance to be involved at least.
