Wenger reveals team news ahead of Everton clash


Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of Sunday’s trip to Goodison Park.

The Gunners face an under-pressure Everton who come into the game with just two wins from their last 12 games, and off the back of a Europa League defeat at home to Lyon on Thursday night.

There is some good news from an Arsenal point of view with two players who missed the Watford game back in the squad, and no significant damage done to one who had to go off at Vicarage Road.

“Alexis, Ramsey and Koscielny will be alright,” said Wenger after the first two were not available for the trip to Watford last weekend.

There wasn’t such good news about Danny Welbeck though, while there are others sidelined until after the next Interlull.

“Welbeck is out,” he said. “He has a groin problem, I think it will be two to three weeks before he is back. He will not be back before the international break.

“Mustafi will not be back before the break, and Ospina as well. Ospina is not very bad, he has a grade one [groin problem] so it’s just a couple of weeks. Mustafi is a bit worse than Ospina.

“Calum Chambers as well will be back after the break, and everybody else is alright.”
