Team news: Giroud, Gabriel and Jenkinson

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of the Watford game at Vicarage Road on Saturday:

on the latest team news…
Basically we have the same squad available as last week. I think it will be a similar squad.

on if Giroud could start against Watford…
Giroud is still a little fraction behind physically.

on Ramsey and Iwobi…
They are progressing well. Will it be immediately after the break [that they are back]? That’s what we’ll have to see in the next two weeks.

on Gabriel…
He’s progressing very well. He’s ahead of schedule. We said six to eight weeks and we think it could be six.

on Jenkinson…
Carl Jenkinson, we plan six weeks from today. He had to do his shoulders as well - sometimes when a guy has weaknesses and he has a big injury, you take advantage of the fact that he has a big injury to sort out the short ones. That’s what we did with him. He had the two shoulders done [too]. He went through a tough time, Carl. But he’s brave, conscientious, motivated and I think he will come back well.
