Team news: Who is fit to face Watford?

There was positive news from Arsène Wenger on Monday after he revealed the latest team news ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League game against Watford.

You can read a full transcript of what the boss told the media in his press conference below:

on the team news…We have some players to check from Saturday. Of course all the players who stayed behind other than Granit Xhaka are available for selection. I will decide that after training today.

on Danny Welbeck…He’s very sharp but we’re still not out of it completely. We still have to be cautious with him. Where I agree is that physically he is ready to play. We still have to manage the times we use him and the times we rest him for a while. We will do that in the next month and then after, hopefully he will be completely fit.

on if Welbeck has done enough to start Tuesday…Of course he has done enough to keep his place but at the moment we have to be cautious with him. I’m not sure how we’ll use him every three days. I think he’s a bit short for that. But the quality of the performance was there.
