Team news: Ozil, Alexis, Ramsey and Mustafi

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield against Chelsea.

The Arsenal manager provided updates on Mesut Ozil, Alexis, Shkodran Mustafi, Aaron Ramsey and Gabriel.

This is what he had to say:

on the team news…
We have basically everyone available to choose from on Sunday and today in training we didn’t have Ozil, but he should be alright, and Ramsey, who should be alright as well. Some players are just coming back like Alexis and Mustafi, and I haven’t decided yet if I will involve them or not.

on Ozil and Ramsey…
Ramsey had a little muscular problem, and Ozil a a little ankle problem. They will train on Saturday.

on Francis Coquelin…
No, he is not available. He got injured in the Emirates Cup but we don’t think it will be too bad - two weeks.

on Gabriel…
He is a long-term injury but he starts to run again now.

on Alexis…
He is good, as you can see from training. He had a good rest, so he needs to work on his fitness but once he is in a game he is sharp. He doesn’t look like he has been away.

on if he is over the flu…
He is over the flu, yes. I told you it was never a problem for us.
