Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update as Arsenal prepare to face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.
With just two wins from the last eight in the league, it’s crucial the Gunners get back to winning ways, especially as Liverpool will unquestionably fail to beat Man City directly after our game, so there’s a chance to close the points gap there.
Injuries have been mounting up in recent weeks, and while some remain absent, there’s some good news with Jack Wilshere’s injury not as bad as first thought and the return of Aaron Ramsey.
“Jack was injured on Wednesday,” he said, “but we had good news. He’s walking properly. He’s not out yet of the game on Sunday, so that’s a positive.
“We’ll have Ramsey back in the squad, and there’s an uncertainty about Ozil, he’ll have a test tomorrow, that’s a bit 50/50.
“Ozil has a swollen knee, a recurrence of what he had two to three weeks ago. That’s why he wasn’t involved on Tuesday
“All the others are out for Bournemouth.”
Asked about his defenders, he continued, “Koscielny next week, Kolasinac next – but he has a little, little chance to be available for Sunday – Monreal next week.”
Olivier Giroud remains two weeks away from a first team return.
