Update on Milan's walking wounded...

It is now known that Alessandro Nesta, Andrea Pirlo and Ricky Kaka will take part in Milan's Champions League tie against Arsenal on Tuesday evening. The three were in doubt after suffering various injuries and all missed at least the last two games Milan have played.

All three players took part in normal training today and there have been signs of vast improvement. They also underwent tests and all the results were positive; leaving them available for Tuesday's game.

Alexandre Pato will also be available after he sustained a knee injury against Lazio on Saturday evening. Today the Brazilian phenomenon has been feeling better leaving the team a lot more confident.

However it is not all good news for Carlo Ancelotti as he will once again will be without Clarence Seedorf. The dutchman was substituted in the first half of Saturday's game against Lazio with muscle problems and he is a sure doubt for the tie on Tuesday.

The game against Lazio was surely a physical one as Milan have lost another two players due to injuries sustained in that game. Emerson and Jankulovski will both miss the clash against Arsenal. The time it will take to recover the Brazilian is unknown while Jankulovski's objective is to be available for the game against Empoli.

These injuries have surely cost Milan some vital points in recent domestic games and the fatigue is surely showing, but the tie against Arsenal is a MUST win and they will need to muster all the strength they have to find that winning touch against a strong Arsenal team that is also struggling.
