on Tomas Rosicky
He is alright. He was sick last weekend. I think he pushed himself very hard to get on the pitch but he has recovered since and should be fit for the game.

on Abou Diaby….
He will not start. He was sick until yesterday and had a light session. He could be short again but he could be in the squad.

on Theo Walcott
Theo is out for Saturday. He has a little chance to catch the last game but not the next two.

on Per Mertesacker
He is doing well. He is hopeful he will make the Euros and I hope he does. He is doing all his work here and the next two weeks will be vital for him. He has started ball work and he looks quite good.

on other team news…
Basically the squad should be similar to what we have seen in the last game. But Yossi Benayoun should be back because he could not play in the last game against Chelsea.
