on Gabriel…

He is running outside. He is out for Saturday. I believe one more week. He started running yesterday but one more week [is needed]. 

on Jack Wilshere…

I think three or four weeks [before he can play again].

on rotating the squad…

I will, as always, play a team who has a good chance to qualify. The normal squad is involved on Saturday. It is a normal squad and we’ll play a usual strong team.

on if Welbeck will play…

I might start him. I haven’t completely decided yet. It crosses my mind to start him.

on whether he will rest Cech…

Petr Cech it is possible yes, because Ospina plays in the FA Cup and [Cech] will not be involved.

on if Elneny could play…

Elneny is fit. He is one of the players who could get a run [out] there. He’s mobile, he’s a very good player. He’s adapting at the moment and I think he’s there now. We’ll certainly see him against Hull. He has a chance to start.
