Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Arsenal's Premier League opener against West Ham United:
on the team news…We have Welbeck on a progressive recovery and Rosicky on a progressive recovery.
on Welbeck…He is not too far away, but he is not ready for Sunday.
on Alexis…Alexis is back in training but I don’t think he will be involved on Sunday, it is a bit early maybe. We have to decide that at the end of the week, but I don’t think he will be involved.
on Alexis training on the beach in Chile…Alex without running around is not Alex, you know. You can’t imagine him lying on the beach somewhere and not moving! He came back in good fitness shape so that is quite positive, but I am not surprised by that because I can’t imagine him lying around for four weeks and doing nothing. That wouldn’t be him.
