Team news: Who is fit to face Villa?

13/14: Newcastle United 0-1 Arsenal - Olivier Giroud

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Monday's Premier League game against Aston Villa. 

on Theo Walcott’s injury…
He has surgery and then it’s rehab. You know that it is six months and you hope it all goes well. The only thing I can say is it's very sad news for us and above all for him.

on Oxlade-Chamberlain being back…
It is unbelievable because he played the first game of the season, against Aston Villa, and now he is back and available and it is against Aston Villa again. That makes it five months where has been completely out, so that means he is fresh and that should give us a boost.

on Ramsey and Gibbs...
Ramsey and Gibbs are very close. There is a small possibility that both of them could be available on Monday.

on Giroud and Ozil... 
They had a good training session yesterday and today they had no problem. They could be back.

on Bendtner…
Bendtner, you count three weeks from now until he is back in training.

on Vermaelen…
Vermaelen had a little knee problem so he had to come off against Tottenham. He could be short for Monday but there's still a chance. But everybody else should be alright.
