Arsenal's Eduardo 'can cope with return to St Andrew's'
Eduardo could play at St Andrew's on Saturday
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has backed striker Eduardo to cope with a first trip back to St Andrew's, where he suffered a horrific injury in 2008.
Eduardo is expected to be in the Gunners' squad for Saturday's Premier League clash against Birmingham.
The 27-year-old broke his leg and ankle in a challenge with Birmingham's Martin Taylor and was out for a year.
Wenger said: "Emotionally it is a weight on his mind. But Eduardo has a lot of mental strength."
Eduardo has made a successful return from the career-threatening injury, making 30 appearances for Arsenal this season, but this will be his first game back at the stadium where he was carried off on a stretcher.
It was an incident that was brought sharply back to the memories of Arsenal fans and players in February when Gunners midfielder Aaron Ramsey broke his leg at Stoke.
