Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Saturday's game against Watford:
on Laurent Koscielny...The only thing today is Koscielny has a definite test to see if he is available or not. At the time Arteta and Flamini will be certainly will certainly be available for selection. We have three players who could come back and be available again and I don’t think we lost anybody from our last game.
on Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck…They are progressing well. Danny Welbeck at the earliest will be back [at the] beginning of January.
on Alexis playing for Chile not fully fit…I cannot do a lot about it. He came off as you have seen against Manchester United with a hip problem, a problem with the rotator muscle and he wanted to go. He played in the last two games and we have to see how he comes back but it is always a tricky situation Chile are trying to qualify for the World Cup and he is an important player for them but they will use him if they can. He is a guy that always wants to play so I knew that was always going to be a tricky situation.
