Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Mathieu Flamini could be in the squad to face Newcastle United this afternoon.

The Frenchman is a welcome return for the midfield area where Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are all out injured.

Chile's Alexis Sanchez is expected to be fit to face Sunderland at home on January 9.

"We have no new injuries from Bournemouth, only fatigue. Everybody is alright," Wenger explained.

"Certainly we will rotate again. Everybody else in the squad against Bournemouth should be available.

"We might have Flamini back.

"Alexis [Sanchez] will be too short for Newcastle. He [could] be back for Sunderland.

"[Mikel] Arteta is back in training but is too short [of match fitness] to be selected in a competitive game.

"He [Tomas Rosicky] is three weeks away [from training] now.

"I maintain what I said that he [Jack Wilshere] could make it back for February. He will be available again."
