Arsène Wenger has revealed the following team news ahead of the Newcastle game:

on the latest updates…
We should not have any new injuries from our last game. Giroud and Rosicky should be available again. They were sick at Wigan

on Abou Diaby and Andre Santos...
They should be coming back into training with the squad next week.

on the injury situation with only Fabianski out...
It is unusual, especially at this period of the season. It is down to the continuing good work we are doing behind the scenes at the Club. We hope that it continues because it is important to go into January with a full squad and we will be losing Gervinho to the Africa Cup of Nations.
