Arsène Wenger has revealed the latest news on his squad ahead of Saturday's north London derby away at Tottenham Hotspur.
on team news…Petr Cech is out and Laurent Koscielny is not back. We have to check this morning that everybody who played on Wednesday is a available tomorrow.
on Cech…It is a calf injury. He had a little groin problem but he declared himself 100 per cent fit. Then you have to trust the player. He’s 33 years old and he knows his body. If he says he’s fit then he is available.
on Koscielny…Koscielny is out. He has a small injury but he is out tomorrow and Tuesday next week. It’s a grade one, so it’s a very short period. I don’t think he’ll be available on Tuesday but next Saturday he should be alright.
on if Jack Wilshere is running…Not yet. He is going to plan. He is doing well but we think three to four weeks. Maybe he will be available [after the international break].
on Jack’s chances for Euro 2016…He is an important player in the plans of Roy Hodgson. We know that because I spoke with Roy about Jack. We need to do everything to make him available for us.
