Team news: Ozil, Koscielny, Iwobi and Welbeck

Arsene Wenger has provided us with the latest team news update ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Brighton at Emirates Stadium.

He discussed Mesut Ozil’s availability, and also had this to say about Laurent Koscielny, Alex Iwobi, Francis Coquelin and Danny Welbeck:

on team news…
Mesut Ozil will not be available for Sunday.

on how long Mesut is out for…
Very short-term. He is not far, but he is not enough for Sunday. 

on Alex Iwobi…
Alex Iwobi might be available for Sunday, of course Coquelin and Welbeck are not available. 

on Laurent Koscielny…
We have a doubt about Laurent Koscielny unfortunately and he will have a test tomorrow. It’s an achilles problem, it’s ongoing. I think everybody else should be available. Sead Kolasinac had some problems, but he is available. That’s basically it.
