Arsene Wenger: Injury update before the FA Community Shield against Chelsea


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Sunday's FA Community Shield match is a golden opportunity for his team to show that they are now in a position to beat Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

The Frenchman has never beaten his Portuguese rival in 13 meetings and will be desperate to retain the trophy having beaten Manchester City 3-0 at Wembley last year.

"It's our next game and the first trophy at stake. We will want to win the game of course," Wenger told reporters.

"The preparation was compact, short, but physically we are not far away.

"I think Chelsea have beaten us at Chelsea 2-0 last year, where we felt that we gave the game away a little bit.

"At home, we played 0-0, so it's a third opportunity for us to beat them. We have a good opportunity to show that we have improved.

"It's on neutral ground, where they've had success and we've had success, so it will be very interesting."

Asked to give an update about the fitness level of his players, Wenger explained: "[David] Ospina has just come back to training today.

"Alexis [Sanchez] is coming back next weekend. Everybody else should be available apart from [Danny] Welbeck."
