Press conference

Will Alexis or Jack play against Bournemouth?

There are always a few question marks over team selection when most of the squad have been away on international duty, but by the end of Thursday all of our travelling players will be back at London Colney.

So who starts against Bournemouth on Saturday? Will Alexis be fit after his exertions with Chile? Will Jack Wilshere face the club he spent last season on loan with? Here’s the latest team news from Arsene Wenger:

on whether all the international players have returned OK…

We don’t know yet because Alexis, Ospina, Ramsey… they are coming back today [Thursday]. We’ll check that all along the day.

on any other team news…

No, I think we have no injuries. Everybody is looking to come back quite well. Wilshere is getting stronger every day. Overall, we have no big injury problems.

on whether Jack could be included in the squad against Bournemouth…

I don’t know yet, I haven’t decided who will be in the squad or not.

on whether Jack is ready to be a part of a matchday squad yet…

He still needs some fitness work, I think. But what I mean is he is in a positive trend. He is getting better and better.
