Arsène Wenger has revealed the following fitness update:

on Andre Santos' return for the reserves…

Andre played 60 minutes with no problem. Overall we are getting our players back so that is positive.

on Abou Diaby

Abou might play in the reserves next week at Liverpool. That game is on Tuesday night.

on Jack Wilshere...

Jack's scan was positive. There is no problem, it is normal evolution and he is continuing his progression. It's too early to fix a date though, we go day by day with him.

on Francis Coquelin...

Francis is two more weeks away from fitness.

on Per Mertesacker...

I believe Per will be out for the rest of the season. Basically there are only six weeks to go [this season] so I don't think he'll be sharp enough to come back and play. He would need to train and get back to full fitness.
