Press conference

Wenger on whether Alexis will start at Anfield

Is Alexis fit for our game against Liverpool on Sunday? If so, will he start the match at Anfield?

Those were some of the questions Arsene Wenger was asked in his pre-match press conference on Thursday, and this is what he said:

on the team news…
The early team news is that Koscielny is back available for selection and Alexis has worked very hard to be back again and he is available as well.

on how Alexis has looked in training…
He works very hard, focused and gives absolutely everything. He loves to play so much that is is sometimes difficult to stop him but he looks absolutely ready. he has not played for a long time so I will have to decide what I do with him but he looks ready to play.

on whether Alexis will start…
I will have to make that decision. It is Thursday today and we play on Sunday and he looks in good shape, he has worked very hard.
