Arsene Wenger and his men will play host to the Black Cats in a match where a point is all both team requires to seal their Champions League and Premier League status respectively.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck have still not returned from injury, so questions are justifiably being asked over whether they’ll be fit in time for the FA Cup final.

Another worry for the Gunners is Laurent Koscielny who is doubt for the match as he has been unwell and may be forced to sit out the Sunderland game.

With Arsenal facing three games in seven days, Arsene Wenger may look to rotate his squad a little.

on Mathieu Debuchy

He’s not in full training yet. He will be in full training on Friday. 

on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck

They are progressing well but they will not be available for Wednesday.

on whether they will be fit for the FA Cup final

I don’t know yet, let’s see how they all recover next week. Danny Welbeck is not available yet, he is not in full training, so I honestly don’t know. They all have to get fit very quickly now because there is not a long way to go [to the final].
