Arsène Wenger provided plenty of early team news at his pre-Manchester City press conference.

The boss gave updates on Petr Cech, Lucas and Santi Cazorla, and also discussed Mesut Ozil's fitness.

This is what he said:

on early team news…We have lost Petr Cech at West Brom - he will not be fit for Sunday. Apart from that Cazorla, Lucas as well is not fit. That should basically be it.

on Lucas' problem…He has a thigh problem.

on Cech timescale…I think he could miss Sunday and Wednesday against West Ham. He may be available again after.

on Cazorla update…Unfortunately no. I think the season is over for him.

on Mesut and whether he's able to start again…He is, yes. He is in contention to start again. He played 20 minutes with Germany in Azerbaijan and he came back focused and worked very hard this week.
