Arsene Wenger and his men play host to Tony Pulis’ West Brom side tonight, as both team prepare to do battle in match day 34 of the 2015/2016 season.

Wenger, speaking to the media ahead of the match gave updates on Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as well as the current state of his squad going into the clash.

Everybody is available from our last game against Crystal Palace. We have no big injuries. We will have a final test today. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the only one not practising now.

He [Cazorla] has joined normal training and he looks okay, of course still a bit short on the competitiveness front. We will try to get him maybe more training, and then join us directly maybe.

Wilshere has absorbed well his first obstacle of getting games. That means he has finally got 90 minutes and he has had no setbacks and the positives are that in every game he was sharper. That means he has a good fitness basis. Overall, the progression should be normal. I don’t think he will be available for selection [against West Brom], but from then it is whether I select him or not.

Arsenal will be looking to put behind them back to back draw, after the Gunners where held to a 3-3 draw at West Ham followed by a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

A win tonight will ensure Arsenal return to the third position on the league table – two points adrift Manchester City, who where held to a 1-1 draw at the St James Park on Tuesday.
