Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday's north London derby against Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.
The boss revealed updates on Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott, Nacho Monreal, Santi Cazorla and Kieran Gibbs and this is what he had to say:
on the team news…
We have still some uncertainties at the moment because Kieran Gibbs has been touched on his shoulder and I don’t know how will respond to that. I will see today [Thursday]. After, the players who did not travel like Cazorla, Monreal, Walcott - there is still some uncertainty today. The closest to coming back looks to be Walcott. We will have a test with him.
on Bellerin…Hector has a test. I left him behind [in midweek] because I was cautious with him. We could have basically forced the issue, he could have played maybe in Bulgaria but he should be alright [for Sunday].
on Nacho…He has tests today and tomorrow and then we will decide.
on Cazorla…He is similar, he has not practised yet - he will try to go out today and we will see where we go from there. He is a doubt, yes.
