Arsene Wenger on injuries, the Monaco pitch and the possibility of penalties


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that defender Gabriel Paulista is in the squad to face Monaco on Tuesday night.

Midfielders Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are still ruled out.

The Frenchman also raised concerns over the condition of the Stade Louis II.

"It is a little bit [of a concern] - it has rained a lot," he said on Monday.

"There were two problems when I was a manager here. The quality of the pitch is not fantastic. When it rains in the south of France, it rains. It doesn't drizzle. They had to postpone a game recently because of the rain."

Asked about the possibility of 1-3 scoreline and a penalty shoot-out to decide the tie, the Arsenal boss added: "We practice penalties all year but not especially for tomorrow's game.

"You never know who finishes the game so we don't have an order. You have to improvise always a little bit."
