Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says key three players are back in the squad ahead of Saturday's home game against Stoke City.

The Gunners welcome midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini back as well as Germany international Mesut Ozil who could start on the bench.

The 26-year-old last featured for Arsenal in the 2-0 defeat against Chelsea in October and will be a much-needed return ahead of the second part of the season.

"The team news is that [Aaron] Ramsey is back in training [after a hamstring problem]," Wenger said.

"[Mesut] Ozil is back in training [after the long-term knee injury]. He [Mesut Ozil] will have a training session on Friday with the squad. He will certainly be available for selection on Sunday. Will I start him or not? I haven't decided yet.

"[Mathieu] Flamini is back in training [as well].

"We've got three players back. [Danny] Welbeck is still not available for Sunday because he is a bit short. Maybe next week he will be available. [Olivier] Giroud is back from suspension. So we have a bigger squad than last week."
