Team news: Updates on Welbeck and Walcott

Danny Welbeck

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Burnley at Turf Moor.

He provided updates on Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott and this is what he said:

on team news…

Everybody looks alright. There are some kicks because it was quite a physical game [at Cologne], but overall we have no injuries. Everyone who played will be available to compete for the squad on Sunday. That is one of the positives of last night, we have no injuries. The fact we can rotate means the players are less overloaded with competition.

on it being a nice feeling to have those options in such a busy period…

Yes because we play every three days. Apart from Theo Walcott, and long-term Santi Cazorla, all the players are available.

on Theo Walcott…

For the weekend, no [he is not available]. He’s back in training now, so he should be okay for next week. He has been ill.

on Santi Cazorla…

I hope to see him soon, that he comes over to give an update.

on Danny Welbeck…

The last time he came back from injury, we played him at Watford and after an hour he got a bad hamstring. This time I didn’t want to take that gamble. I wanted to be a bit more progressive with him. Almost certainly, nothing would have happened but I felt it was more sensible to do it. He’s fine. He’s completely fine.
