Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Mikel Arteta, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says midfielder Jack Wilshere is in the squad to face Swansea City on Sunday.

The Englishman missed the mid-week Champions League game but is expected to be in the starting line-up against Garry Monk's side.

"[Mikel] Arteta will be out for Sunday. He has a mild hamstring strain and he will be out for a short period because it's a grade one. He should be back after the internationals," Wenger said on Friday.

"[Olivier] Giroud joins in training next week. Jack [Wilshere] is alright, he is back in the squad for Sunday.

"[Mathieu] Debuchy, [David] Ospina and [Mesut] Ozil are progressing very well, but of course they are not available before or straight after the international break.

"Laurent [Koscielny] has a little chance to be back after the international break.

"He [Theo Walcott] is now ready to play again and we just have to leave him in peace and give him the time needed to come back.

"He has been out for 10 months - I don't know if you realise how long that is. People think it's like mechanics.

"[Players are] not machines, they are human beings and to get back into the rhythm of the top, top competition will take time."
