Team news: Who's fit to face Man United?

Olivier Giroud

Arsene Wenger has revealed the following team news ahead of Saturday's game against Manchester United:

on Giroud and Arteta…Giroud and Arteta are both available. It's just a question of how ready they are. But they are available.

on Giroud…He is three or four weeks ahead of schedule. Originally we planned to have him back for competition at the beginning of next year. So he's one month ahead.

on relying on Welbeck while Giroud was out…Yes, and on Sanchez as well. But we have Giroud back, we have Walcott back. Slowly they will integrate into the team again and give us different options.

on Koscielny and Debuchy…Koscielny and Debuchy are doing well, they are out on the field [working] again. We have to see now. Usually field work is three weeks away from full group training. Then there is fitness. It looks straightforward for Debuchy. It's not inflammation, it's just repairing surgery. For Koscielny, it depends how well he responds to training. At the moment he looks good.

on Ozil…Ozil is doing well but he will not be ready before the start of 2015.
