Arsene Wenger gave the following team news update at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday:
on Mathieu Debuchy…He’s not in full training yet. He will be in full training on Friday.
on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck…They are progressing well but they will not be available for Wednesday.
on whether they will be fit for the FA Cup final...I don’t know yet, let’s see how they all recover next week. Danny Welbeck is not available yet, he is not in full training, so I honestly don’t know. They all have to get fit very quickly now because there is not a long way to go [to the final].
on the latest team news…We have an uncertainty about Laurent Koscielny that we will check today. Everybody else I will know a bit more about after training. Yesterday [Monday] was a recovery day and we have not trained a lot. Today we will know much more.
