Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round clash against Burnley at Emirates Stadium:
on the team news…Mertesacker is out because of the red card, and everybody else is available, apart from Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla. After that it is just a question of selection and decision-making, that is the key.
on Wilshere and Cazorla…Jack and Santi are progressing well but they are at least a few weeks away. But these two apart, it is just about competitiveness and match fitness.
on Welbeck…Danny Welbeck is not completely ready but he is not far. He needs a game or two because he’s been out since last April. The Stoke [under-21] game is too soon because he only had one session with the team, and that is too short.
on Coquelin and Rosicky…Francis is available to play now because he has passed two weeks of full training. Tomas is also available for selection.
Referee: Roger East
