Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's game against Aston Villa:
on team news… Mesut Ozil is back in training.
on if anybody else is a doubt…No. Oxlade-Chamberlain is not back. From Sunday, I think everybody else should be available.
on Welbeck…We are all devastated and very sad. When I say I’m very sad, the whole team is thinking like that. It is surprising news. I expected him to at worse miss the Euros, and that is already bad. To be out for such a long time, he had just come back after a year out. You imagine being a 25-year-old professional and you get news like that… we will have to support to him to cope with it.
on a blow for England…He was in the qualifiers as a player. He had a good understanding with the rest of the squad and he was versatile because he could play on the flank, through the middle and I believe it is a big loss for England as well.
