Arsene Wenger has given the latest team news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash at home to Reading.

on Walcott and Wilshere…
Jack (ankle) is still out and Theo is still out because he has a little groin problem. For this weekend he will be short. He is progressing very well but will not be involved on Saturday.

on when they will be back…
It is one week, basically the next game, for Theo. Jack will start to run again outside next week but it might make two weeks for him – on Monday next week he will have been out for four weeks.

on Ryo, who injured his ankle on loan at Wigan...
He is back here. It is long-term for him.

on other injuries…
Gibbs is sick and in bed. I don't know if he'll be involved or not. At the moment we don't know. We haven't seen him in the last three days.

on Podolski and Sagna…
They are available.
