Arsène Wenger has no new injury concerns ahead of the massive weekend clash at Chelsea.

Speaking exclusively to Arsenal TV Online on Thursday, the Frenchman confirmed he would be able to name an unchanged squad. The only absentees are Abou Diaby (calf), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) and Eduardo (broken leg/dislocated ankle). All three missed the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough last Saturday.

"At the moment nobody is back," said Wenger. " No, there are no additional injuries to last week.

"But Abou Diaby has still not joined the group. He is still in special training. And it is very difficult to say with Tomas at the moment."

Subscribers will be able to see the full video interview on Friday morning. In it, Arsène talks about: 

  • the build-up to Grand Slam Sunday
  • Arsenal regaining their edge after four draws
  • his thoughts on Man United's win and Chelsea's draw this week
  • Avram Grant's Chelsea v Jose Mourinho's Chelsea
  • Chelsea's need to make up ground
  • Cristiano Ronaldo's goalscoring form
  • Theo Walcott's call-up
  • contract talks with Mathieu Flamini
  • the rumours about Loic Perrin
  • the future of Gilberto
