Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Watford:
on the team news…From the Hull game we lost Ramsey. Gabriel and Mertesacker came off injured but should be available. Koscielny is not far. Will I risk him or not? There is a little medical risk but I have not made a decision yet. Coquelin is coming back from suspension and Bellerin was not in the squad. He is now available.
on if Mertesacker and Gabriel have been training… Gabriel no, Mertesacker yes. I don’t think they have lost too much fitness. We will see. I will make a decision tomorrow. My gut feeling is that Gabriel will join in tomorrow and be available.
on Ramsey…I don’t believe that [he will be out for the season]. At the moment his clinical signs are quite positive. I would say four weeks.
on Laurent Koscielny…He has to join in normal training tomorrow and then it is for me to [decide whether] take a gamble on a guy that has had one training session with the group or not.
on Cech, Wilshere, Cazorla…They are all progressing nicely, but this week and next week they have no chance.
