Arsene Wenger: Injury update ahead of FA Cup Final


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says striker Danny Welbeck will not be fit to face Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

The Englishman continues to struggle with a knee injury and will also miss England's games against the Republic of Ireland on June 7 and Slovenia on June 14.

Defender Mathieu Debuchy and winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are however fit and available to face Tim Sherwood's side.

"Danny Welbeck is out still," Wenger said on Wednesday.

"He will not be fit for us or for England. That's basically the only injury we have at the moment. Everyone else is available.

"He would have been short anyway so I was prepared for that. When I saw Roy Hodgson last we were both confident that Welbeck would be available but we called the FA yesterday to explain that his bone bruising at the knee was not healed and that he absolutely had to rest.

"[Mikel] Arteta is back in full training. We have no new injuries from the weekend.

"They [Mathieu Debuchy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are available. They are short of competition but available."
