Arsene Wenger is likely to make a number of changes for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City after resting some key men against Ostersunds.
Alex Lacazette is unavailable and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is ineligible, and there were question marks over a few players when Arsene Wenger faced the media on Friday.
Here’s the very latest:
on the main team news…
From Thursday night, we don’t know what kind of state Alex Iwobi is in, for example. We will know that today and tomorrow. But overall, we have no injuries from last night. Some players were rested, they are alright. After that, I have to make a decision on Aaron Ramsey on Saturday. He looks OK, but we will know more about it tomorrow.
on Mesut Ozil…
I’ll see him this morning. He had a good session yesterday, that he absorbed well. So we have to see how he responds to it today. But I think he will be alright. You want all your best players available and, of course, he is an important player for us.
