Wenger reveals latest team news ahead of cup quarter-final


Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final with Lincoln City.

The Gunners face the non-league side at the Emirates looking to respond to Tuesday night’s defeat to Bayern Munich, and to put themselves within two games of a trophy.

There are still concerns over Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi who missed the Champions League game through illness.

“We have two uncertainties,” said Wenger. “Welbeck who had to come off after the warm up for sickness. The other is Iwobi, couldn’t turn up because of the same problem.

“Everybody else should be available.”

Wenger was asked about Mesut Ozil, who is recovering from a bout of illness himself, and his possible team selection.

“He still felt not too well after the game,” he said. “I will see in training how he feels. I haven’t decide yet about the team for Saturday.

I always play a team who has a good chance to qualify, and I will continue to do that of course.”

It was also put to him that there might be an issue with players who are picking up illnesses.

“We have a little problem on that front,” he said. “It could be a bug, I don’t really know.

“It’s the job of the doctors, I have enough to do!”
