Team news: Who's fit to face West Brom?

13/14: Arsenal 3-1 Stoke City - Bacary Sagna

Arsene Wenger has announced the following team news ahead of the West Bromwich Albion game:on Sagna's fitness...He will not be fit. He has a mild hamstring injury and will be out for the weekend and for [the international matches].

on whether Carl Jenkinson will replace Sagna...Yes, it will be him.

on losing Sagna…It's always a blow because he is a very complete defender. He can defend well, he is good in the air, he can attack well as well, and he's a winner-type, so of course for us it is a handicap. But Jenkinson had a good start to the season as well and he's growing as well as a player. I am sure he will do very well.

on Santi Cazorla (ankle)…He is not in contention. But he could be not far after the international break.

on Yaya Sanogo…He is on a good way after his back problem. He will be the same, after the international break.
