Team news: Who is fit to face Chelsea?

Mathieu Flamini

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of the Capital one Cup fourth-round clash against Chelsea:

on Mathieu Flamini...He has a scan today and then we will get the results as to how long he will be out. It doesn't look like a bad muscle injury but honestly it's too early to give you a precise answer. It's a groin injury.

on Jack Wilshere...Yes, he is OK to play.

on Mikel Arteta...He is suspended for one game, so I will not appeal.

on other injuries...Serge Gnabry has a problem, he got a kick on the ankle. He will be assessed tomorrow. After that we will decide who plays and who doesn't play. I will decide [on Tuesday]. Eisfeld has a back problem.

on Gedion Zalalem...He is not yet available. He had a knee problem. He is back in full training but he has not played yet. He will play 45 minutes with the under-18 team later this week.

on Emmanuel Frimpong...He is still short of competition. Isaac Hayden will be involved, Ryo and Gnabry if he's fit.
