Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's Premier League game against Crystal Palace:
on Oxlade-Chamberlain and Cazorla…Next week they will be back maybe, they are not back in full training yet. They are still on fitness work.
on Wilshere and Rosicky…I have no news today. After the under-21s game [yesterday] there were no reports of any problems.
on other team news…From last Saturday's game against West Ham, we should have everyone available who was in the squad.
on whether Mertesacker will return…I haven’t decided yet. We are 48 hours away from the game so I will see.
on who will play in goal on Sunday…I have not decided that. When it is decided I will have to inform the people first.
on why people were surprised Cech didn’t come straight back in…Petr Cech is our No 1 but Ospina is also a fantastic goalkeeper. His numbers are absolutely exceptional in the Premier League. I felt that Petr Cech had only had one week of training and was only just coming back.
