Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has provided updates on the fitness of a number of the club’s stars, ahead of their weekend’s clash.
Wenger confirmed that a number of first-team regulars will not feature due to fitness problems, rather than simply being rested, with both Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil ruled out.
Initial reports suggested that Welbeck, who limped off injured versus Chelsea at the weekend, would be sidelined for at least a month, with Wenger confirming as much this afternoon:
