Wenger reveals team news ahead of Burnley clash


Arsenal travel to Turf Moor on Sunday to take on Burnley, and Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update.

Having rested so many players for the 1-0 defeat to Cologne, the Premier League XI should be sharp and ready to go, and there were no new issues from the Europa League clash.

“Everybody looks alright,” said the manager. “There are some kicks because it was quite a physical game , but overall we have no injuries.

“Everyone who played will be available to compete for the squad on Sunday. That is one of the positives of last night, we have no injuries.

“The fact we can rotate means the players are less overloaded with competition.”

Theo Walcott will miss out again due to his recent illness, but he is back in training according to the boss.

Danny Welbeck came through his 45 minutes without any reaction, leaving Wenger happy he’s got that option for Sunday.

“The last time he came back from injury, we played him at Watford and after an hour he got a bad hamstring,” he said.

“This time I didn’t want to take that gamble. I wanted to be a bit more progressive with him.

“Almost certainly, nothing would have happened but I felt it was more sensible to do it. He’s fine.

“He’s completely fine.”
