on Jack Wilshere’s comeback game…
He came through it alright. There was no reaction. We are pleased but it is now down to taking the right time to ease him slowly back. We are all very happy, and he especially must be exceptionally happy, but he has been out for 14 months.

on Mikel Arteta missing training...
Arteta will have a test tomorrow morning. We will make the decision then whether we include him in the squad or not. He has an ankle injury.

on other team news…
We lost Diaby, who has a thigh strain. He is definitely out for three weeks as well. Apart from Diaby and Arteta everyone came through well.

on Szczesny…
He is injured and will not be back for two or three weeks.
