Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Jack Wilshere is not fit to face Monaco in the Champions League.

The Englishman was an unused substitute in Arsenal's 2-1 away win against Crystal Palace but will not be in the squad to face Leonardo Jardim's side.

"The only uncertainty I have at the moment is Jack Wilshere," Wenger said on Tuesday.

"He was rested [at training], because he trained hard until now. No, it's not a setback but I don't think [he'll play against Monaco].

"Everybody else is available. [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returned to full training], yes."

Wenger spent seven years at Monaco between 1987 and 1994 and he says he will always be grateful for the chance the French club gave him almost thirty years ago.

"It was the start of my career and I didn't know how long I'd be in the job or where I would be," he said.

"It was my first chance to be in a big club, I was very young and you're always grateful for that.

"It's interesting. I'm happy that Monaco are back at the top level but I've been manager of Arsenal Football Club for 18 years and I'm focused on just qualifying for the quarter-final against a good side."
