on Robin van Persie…
The medical team did very well to get him on the bench [for the Stoke game]. They did so well that he got us two goals so I don't know whether we should give the goals to Van Persie or the medical team!

on Gibbs, Jenkinson and Diaby…
It looks unlikely that they will be available for the Chelsea game.

on Thomas Vermaelen
He is back in full training again, he is alright now.

on Jack Wilshere

Everything is going to plan. The next steps will be to have a scan but he is on track.

The full interview with the boss is now available on Arsenal Player.
