Team news: Updates on the Ox and Welbeck

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsène Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Wednesday night's home Premier League match against Swansea City.

on team news…I will have to check today but I don’t think we have any problems from Sunday apart from one or two who have muscular tightness. Apart from that, everybody should be available.

on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s injury…[He will be out for] six for eight weeks. No surgery. We feared surgery at some stage before we saw the MRI. In the end we got, on that front, positive news.

on it being a blow…The next eight weeks means March and April. He should be OK for the Euros.

on selection…It’s possible I will make changes. Some players are still not out of it. I will have to see if I have to be cautious with Danny Welbeck or not. Medically I need advice on that and I will see.
