Arsene Wenger opened up his pre-match press conference on Wednesday with a run through the latest team news - including the big names he will rest against Cologne.
On the injury front, Santi Cazorla is a long-term absentee but the overall picture is pretty good. Here’s the latest:
on who won’t be playing on Thursday…
On the injury front we have no big problems, a few players have had some response to playing two international games like Ozil and Ramsey, so they are rested completely. But overall the injury situation is not too bad.
on Francis Coquelin…
Yes of course, he is out. As I said in the last press conference he is out for three weeks.
