Team news: Gabriel, Ox and Welbeck

Gabriel and Nacho Monreal

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's game against Manchester United:

on Gabriel…

Gabriel has a test today and tomorrow then we will see if he is available for the game.

on Oxlade-Chamberlain…

We lost Oxlade-Chamberlain on Tuesday night. It’s not [a recurrence of a previous injury]. Not at all. It’s a new injury. He has been cut in two by Mascherano and he did his knee. We have to see how big the damage is in his knee. He is consulting a specialist at the moment. Hopefully we will have good news. How long is he out for exactly? I don’t know. 


on Welbeck…

He has been out for a while, we still need to be cautious with him.

on if Welbeck could start on Sunday…

I haven’t picked my team yet for Sunday. I cannot tell you that now at the moment. He is back in the squad but we still have to be cautious with him. He is still in the squad and he is not completely over his knee problem. He has done really well and is very fit. I have to analyse that.

on Wilshere…

He is not back in full training yet.

on other team news…

Everyone else is the same as before, so there’s no Rosicky, Cazorla, Wilshere.
