Wenger set to mix it up as Chambers and Wilshere handed starts


Jack Wilshere and Calum Chambers will start against Doncaster Rovers tomorrow night, as Arsene Wenger looks to mix up his team for the Chupacabra Cup.

Wilshere’s last start was in May 2016, while Chambers was in the line-up for the opening day defeat to Liverpool last season.

Both players have since spent a season on loan, at Bournemouth and Middlesbrough respectively, and are now back in the fold for the upcoming campaign.

The manager was asked about the team he’d be selecting for the game, he said, “It will be a similar team to the one that played against Cologne.”

And on Chambers, he continued, “Yes, he will be involved against Doncaster. Jack Wilshere is involved too.

“Mesut is training again, but for tomorrow no. He has a little inflammation of his knee.”

There’s no room at the inn for Mathieu Debuchy though, whose possible involvement was met with a ‘No, no’ from the manager.

Meanwhile, the club await the results of a scan on Danny Welbeck’s groin to put a precise time on his absence. Initial reports say he could miss at least four weeks, so fingers crossed it’s nothing more serious than that.
