Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Debuchy, Arteta and Rosicky


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirms that midfielders Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere will be back in April.

With key games in the Premier League coming up against Liverpool and Chelsea next month, the Gunners will be hoping to have more options in midfield and give a much-needed rest to the likes of Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla.

The Frenchman was also positive on the return of full-back Mathieu Debuchy who is set to make his long-awaited comeback from injury next month.

"We have no new big injuries, we have some knocks, but nothing major," Wenger said on Thursday.

"West Ham was a very physical game. In the second half of the Monaco game we played some of our players offensively. We paid a little bit for it.

"It is a concern. We have to see how everyone recovers.

"Mathieu Debuchy is two or three weeks away, [Mikel] Arteta and [Jack] Wilshere as well, two or three weeks away. Arteta will maybe come back after the [international] break.

"Tomas Rosicky is hopefully available again for the weekend."
