Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash against Chelsea:

on the latest team news…
Last week against Reading, Per Mertesacker got injured and he has not been out [training] since. He’s still in the treatment room and I don’t know if he will be available or not. [He is] 50/50 [to start against Chelsea] at the moment. Apart from Mertesacker, everybody else [from last weekend] should be available.

on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain…
He’s still out, he has not been in training. He’s not being considered at all.

on Mikel Arteta…
He’s getting closer. He’s back in full training but is still a bit short physically to go into a game of this intensity.

on Gabriel…
He’s ready [to step up]. He came on in the FA Cup semi-final and I think if Per is not ready, Gabriel will start.
