Arsene Wenger on the Liverpool game, gives full injury update


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger describes the atmosphere at Anfield stadium as "special".

The Gunners face Brendan Rodger's side on Sunday afternoon in what could turn out to be a key game in the battle for a top four place at the end of the campaign.

"Yes, of course, there's a special atmosphere [at Anfield]," Wenger said.

"I have a lot of respect for the crowd at Liverpool because they stand behind their team.

"I remember one day we were leading 5-1 at Liverpool and they were chanting 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. It's one of the few grounds in the world where you can see that.

"There's a special combination of knowledge of the game at Liverpool and support for their team. I have a huge respect for that."

Wenger says a number of injured players will be assessed on Saturday, including Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"There's a slight chance of [Nacho] Monreal being available and a very slight chance for [Theo] Walcott," added the Frenchman.

"He [Theo Walcott] is back in training today [Thursday]. But only today. I might take him, I don't know yet until he's back to full training. Let's see.

"We hope that [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain will be fit. That's what we'll see on Saturday after a test. He's not in training at the moment.

"[David] Ospina is back in full training and [Tomas] Rosicky should be back next week.

"[The rest are] all out. They're [Wilshere, Ozil, Koscielny, Ramsey and Arteta are] all progressing as planned."
