Wenger reveals team news ahead of Nottingham Forest clash


Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news as Arsenal begin their defence of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Gunners travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest, and as ever with cup games there’s likely to be some rotation from the Premier League squad.

With a numbers of injuries to deal with already, there’s a new problem for Granit Xhaka who won’t take part.

“From before Chelsea, nothing has changed,” he said. “Kolasinac, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Giroud are all out.

“From Wednesday night we certainly lose Granit Xhaka, who finished with a tight groin.

“I will rotate a little bit because play three games in six days.”

The manager will likely call upon players like Danny Welbeck, Francis Coquelin, Mathieu Debuchy, and perhaps even Theo Walcott despite the fact he’s been linked with a move away from the club.
