Team news: The latest on Shkodran Mustafi

Arsene Wenger has provided a team news update ahead of Thursday’s Europa League group-stage game against BATE Borisov.

He offered the latest news on Shkodran Mustafi, and this is what the Arsenal manager said:

on the team news…
The team news is that everybody is available, we just have a small problem with Mustafi from Saturday. But everybody else looks alright.

on Mustafi’s injury…
A little thigh problem, but it’s a small one.

on when he could be back…
It’s a possibility - if not Southampton, it will be [for] West Ham.

on how having won the group affects his team selection…
Not too much, because I have many players available who need competition. Next week we go into a week with three games and so some players need competition, some experienced players. We’ll play quite an experienced team tomorrow.
