Wenger on Alexis, fans and injuries


What did Arsene Wenger make of our fans on Sunday? How about Alexis’ performance? And what’s the latest on those injured players - including vice-captain Laurent Koscielny?

Read on for the boss’ answers:

on Koscielny, Ramsey and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s injuries…

I don’t know how long Koscielny will be out for. He came off at half-time with an Achilles problem. How long will that last? I don’t know. Ramsey and Oxlade-Chamberlain have a chance of being available on Wednesday.

on whether he thinks the mood will be better on Wednesday…
I must say, despite all what happens on the fans front, I felt out fans were fantastic today. In very difficult moments in the game I felt that our fans - at 1-0 down, at 2-1 down - could have turned against us. I think they were absolutely sensational and helped the team to get through those difficult moments.

on incidents involving fans inside and outside the ground…
I’m not aware of what happened outside. I think what is important in football is what happens inside the pitch and inside the stadium. I feel the fans were absolutely outstanding today.

on how he can improve Alexis’ body language…
I felt that he gave everything today. He came back from South America, I did not see any negative body language. It’s the way he is.
