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

on the latest team news…

It’s difficult because some players are still not practising so I can still not tell you exactly who will be available on Monday. Koscielny should come into the training group today, with Walcott we don’t know but Giroud is back.

on Abou Diaby's injury…

Slow progress. I cannot give you any fixed date because we are a bit in no man's land on that front. He is working. We are waiting for him to come back but he is not ready.

on him playing over Christmas…

Over Christmas? Certainly not.
