Arsene Wenger has revealed the following team news ahead of Saturday's game against Blackburn Rovers:

on Thomas Vermaelen (ankle)...
He is looking quite good and is possibly back for Saturday. He should be in the squad.

0n Jack Wilshere...
He is having tests today [Thursday] and tomorrow. He is looking better. He is still a doubt for Saturday. He’s got a kick on the thigh.

on Laurent Koscielny (calf)...
That is a problem. He has a test today and tomorrow exactly like Wilshere.

on other team news...
Ramsey is alright. Sagna is alright. Jenkinson is suspended. Diaby is available again and all the other players are alright.

on Fabianski playing his first game of the season in midweek...
He came back in the week so we are not too bad on the injury front. We have two short-term problems, with Koscielny and Wilshere, while Gibbs is out. That is it.
