Team news: Ramsey, Iwobi, Koscielny

Koscielny and Giroud in pre-season

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team updates ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Leicester City:

on Ramsey and Iwobi…Both of them have minor muscular problems. I think they will be out until after the international break but we feared worse - for Iwobi especially. It is a thigh problem for Iwobi, and Ramsey is a hamstring that will require two or three weeks. It is better news than we feared at the start.

on Gabriel…He is doing well, but it is six to eight weeks. He is in the boot, but it is very difficult to assess him because he cannot walk properly at the moment.

on whether Ozil, Giroud and Koscielny will be available…Yes, I will consider them for selection this weekend. Of course they have not played any games for a while, so I have to be selective and I cannot go for the three because that would be too risky. But basically with Laurent Koscielny I have no choice! If I have to take a gamble on one, it’s certainly on him.
