Arsene Wenger reported the following team news ahead of the Premier League game against Liverpool:
on the team news…We will have to test Ospina who was not available on Saturday. We have Rosicky back in training so the situation is getting better.
on Ospina…Ospina is a muscular issue and we have to check if he will be available or not. Overall I think he has a 60/40 chance to make it.
on Tomas Rosicky…He will be back in full training this week, it is fantastic because he has been out for very long and it is good to know that a player of that calibre is back in our squad.
on Alexis…We think he will be short for Wednesday, he has a chance to be available for Sunday [against Stoke]. He is always keen to play. If you listen to Alexis, he can always play - even when he is injured. We try to be cautious. With a muscular injury you never exactly how big the risk but he is very close. If you look at him training he is very close.
