Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Wilshere, Diaby, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Welbeck


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects midfielders Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and Mikel Arteta to be fully fit and ready to feature against Burnley on April 11.

The three joined defender Mathieu Debuchy in Arsenal's Under 21 starting line-up on Tuesday against Brentford but the Frenchman is expected not to take any unnecessary risks ahead of this weekend's home game against Liverpool.

"They [Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Debuchy and Abou Diaby] were all involved on Tuesday [against Brentford] and it went well," Wenger told reporters on Thursday.

"They've no problem after that coming out of the game. They are back available in training, a bit short still of top competitive level certainly but that's normal.

"They've been out for a long time but I was quite surprised by how fit they looked and the quality of their performance - it was good.

"[But] I don't know [if they will feature against Liverpool], I haven't decided."

Wenger will also have to assess players in the offensive department with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck expected to miss the top four clash against Brendan Rodgers' men.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out and not available and Danny Welbeck came back from England with a slight knee injury," he said.

"It looks like he [Danny Welbeck] has a little chance to be available for Saturday still.

"You want everybody available and back in the final months to compete at the top level. The consistency will play a big part in the success of the team and having everybody available can help."
