Arsene Wenger has revealed the following team news ahead of Saturday's game against West Ham United:
on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain…Chamberlain has a hamstring strain, the only thing we don't know is how bad it is because usually the scans are only done 48 hours after the accident. That will be done today [Wednesday].
on Jack Wilshere…Jack is progressing well, he is not back in training yet.
on Mathieu Flamini…Mathieu is training, he could be available for the squad on Saturday.
on Gabriel…Gabriel may be [available] next week, he should come back into training on Sunday or Monday.
on whether the Monaco game will affect his team selection…No. We were at a high level of fatigue because we played against Monaco, Everton, QPR, Manchester United, all very physical games. I will have to test medically, physically, how the players are on Friday, and I will make my decision then. The big priority is of course West Ham.
