Team News – Cazorla ruled out of season, Sanchez and Lucas Perez update

Arsenal will host PSG in the Champions League tomorrow in a match dubbed as the battle for first position in Champions League group A.

Speaking ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger has delivered a good and bad injury update concerning Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Santi Cazorla.

“He has recovered completely,” he said. “I never forced in my whole life a player to play.

“Suggestions we forced him to play are wrong.

“We left Walcott and Ramsey [out of training] for recovery. They should be alright.

“Lucas Perez is back training, just not with the squad.

“He is ahead of schedule.”

However, Wenger admitted long-term injury worry Santi Cazorla is nowhere near being fit, claiming he’s given up on the Spain international.

“At the moment I have given up a little bit on that,” he added.

“I don’t know how far he is.

“He is still not in full-time training.”
