Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Monreal, Gibbs and Mertesacker


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says defenders Kieran Gibbs and Per Mertesacker will be in the squad to face Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners crashed out of the League Cup in mid-week but all regular players are expected to feature against Spurs on Saturday including midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

"It was a disappointment to go out against Southampton but we could be a completely different team because I changed 10 players from the Villa game," Wenger told reporters on Friday afternoon.

"We are more in our minds on the back of the Villa game and we want to do well - but we wanted as well to go through in the Capital One Cup but Southampton played very well.

"You have to consider them as being one of the top teams this season in the Premier League.

"Flamini is back in the squad and the long-term injuries are not back," Wenger told reporters on Friday afternoon.

"Everyone else is similar to where they were. Monreal is not back yet. The likes of Giroud, Debuchy and Walcott are unavailable.

"Kieran Gibbs is alright. He's [Per Mertesacker] available, he's in normal training today and I don't think there will be a problem."
