Team news: Updates on Walcott and Mustafi

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Southampton.

He has provided updates on Shkodran Mustafi and Theo Walcott and this is what he said:

on team news…
The only one out at the moment is Mustafi. He is certainly not available for Sunday. There’s a little chance of him coming back for West Ham, but he will not be available for Sunday.

on being in the middle of December with only two players out…
I believe that rotation allowed us to protect the players a little bit, and the players who didn’t play in the Europa League haven’t had to travel either, so that helped.

on Theo Walcott’s recovery from illness…
He was alright [after the game]. He had a little tight calf and that’s why I took him off. He looked alright after the game.
