Press conference

Team news: Wilshere, Ozil, Ramsey, Kolasinac

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

The boss provided updates on Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Sead Kolasinac, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud.

on team news…
From Wednesday night, we had of course Jack, who was injured. We had very good news yesterday morning. I saw him walking normally and his scan was good. He’s not out of the game on Sunday yet, so that is positive news. We’ll have Ramsey back in the squad. We have an uncertainty over Ozil, who will have a test earliest tomorrow. That at the moment is a bit 50:50. All the other players will still be out for Bournemouth.

on Jack’s injury…
It’s his ankle. He turned his ankle when he was blocking the shot. It was more of a shock than a real ankle sprain.

on it being a relief…
It’s a big relief because sometimes we have a tendency to be a bit more dramatic than we should be. His ankles are good, we cannot say he has bad ankles now, but because of his history we always make a bit more of it.

on what Ozil’s injury is…
His knee. He had a swollen knee and a recurrence of what he had two or three weeks ago. That’s why he was not involved on Wednesday night.

on when Kolasinac, Koscielny and Monreal could return…
Koscielny next week, Kolasinac next week - though he has a little, little chance to be available. Monreal earliest next week as well.

on Olivier Giroud…
He is two weeks away.
