Arsene Wenger has given the following fitness updates ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semi-final clash with Wigan at Wembley.
on late fitness tests…I cannot give you concrete team news because we have so many uncertainties about Chamberlain (groin), Gibbs (ankle), Rosicky (thigh). There will be last-minute decisions on those three players. They are all 50:50.
on Ozil and Koscielny...Ozil and Koscielny are still out. I think the earliest to come back for Koscielny could be Tuesday and for Ozil it could be next Saturday. That would be a boost because at the moment we have too many players out and it's important we get them back. We know that at this period of the season, the number of players we had out is too many.
on Diaby...Diaby is back to full training next week. He could be available soon, maybe in a couple of weeks.
on Ramsey…He is ready to start and certainly I will decide to start him because Flamini is suspended.
on Fabianski…Fabianski will play in goal. It's not a difficult decision because it's a decision that has been made for a long time.
on whether Fabianski would play in the final…Let's play on Saturday. You play football on your merit and your performance and he has turned up with top-level performances until now in every single game. He has done extremely well. He has been man of the match in the three games he has played.
on Wilshere…It's all going well but he has not started to run. I think that's planned for next week. At the moment all is going well.
