Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Saturday's game against West Bromwich Albion:
on the team news…I will have to check this morning how available everybody is. Szczesny (pelvis) has not practiced yet at all. Arteta is out for sure of course and I think Sanogo (cramp) has problems as well because I had to take him off. We have a few other players that we have to check.
on Laurent Koscielny...He is well. If I want him to start, he will start.
on Danny Welbeck…Welbeck will have a test this morning. He has not practiced yet. I can’t tell you at the moment [if he’s okay].
on Arteta's injury…Arteta has now had a calf problem for the third time. It's always a small grade one but it's minimum two to three weeks.
on Theo Walcott...Theo is not okay for the weekend, he has an inflamed groin coming back from England and has not been available since. He will not be available for this game, nor Wednesday.
