Team news: Ox, Welbeck, Ramsey, Arteta

Aaron Ramsey

Arsene Wenger has revealed the following team news ahead of the Manchester United game:

on the latest news...We have a squad available that was available recently. Nobody is back. Welbeck is short and I don’t think I’ve forgotten anybody. It’s a similar squad.

on Ramsey…I think he will be alright.

on Welbeck…He’s short a fraction but is not far away. I would love to have him available but we [may] have to do it without him.

on Debuchy...Mathieu Debuchy has a hamstring [problem], he was out [training] for the first time yesterday. He should be available, maybe, if it all goes well, for the cup final.

on if Oxlade-Chamberlain will play again this season…He will not play next week and after that there’s only one week to go for the cup final. I think he will be short but you never know. If he can be available for West Brom, maybe that’s the earliest he could be. It’s difficult to predict today.

on if the injury is down to inflammation in his groin…No no. He has done his hamstring in training. No [he won't need surgery].
