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


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says striker Danny Welbeck could be fit to face Aston Villa in the FA Cup final at the end of the month.

The 24-year-old continues his recovery from injury and will be assessed next week ahead of the final.

The Frenchman also revealed that winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and defender Mathieu Debuchy have resumed training with the rest of the squad.

"We have no basic injuries from our last game," Wenger said on Friday.

"We have given a lot physically and mentally at Manchester United and it [the time before the Sunderland game] was a bit short maybe for us to recover completely.

"This time we have a bit longer to recover and we have our tests to see how well everybody recovers. I might rest one or two maybe but overall I believe that the team will be similar to the team that played on Wednesday night.

"We had a few jaded legs maybe at the end of the game but we'll see how everybody recovers for Sunday.

"Do we have anybody back for Sunday? Danny Welbeck no [but] there is a good chance that he will be available for England. It's difficult to know.

"He had a little knee problem and will go out today for the first time. We have to wait for the response to that to know if he responds in a positive way. He could be fit very quickly.

"If he is not available for the FA Cup final, I can't see him being competitive enough for England.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is back in full training today [Friday], it's not impossible [for him to feature in the FA Cup final] because he starts full training today. We'll see how he responds to that.

"Mathieu Debuchy as well [is back in full training today]."
