Gabriel has an ankle problem, and will be out for six to eight weeks. It is a bit better than we feared at the start.
on Jack Wilshere…
Jack is doing well, but he will be short for Sunday. He is back in training but will not be completely ready for Sunday.
on Carl Jenkinson…
Carl is doing well, and he should be back in November. He is on schedule for his return.
on Per Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck…
We had very good news on Danny’s latest scan and Per is at the moment off his feet for three weeks, so of course if is a bit boring for him. He is with his family in Hannover, but on the football front he is very frustrated. We think it will be four to five months for both players.
