Arsene Wenger provides injury updates and reveals key players will soon be back


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says a number of key players will be back after the international break as midfielder Mathieu Flamini joins the long list of injured players.

The Frenchman was an early substitute against Barcelona in mid-week with Calum Chambers set to replace him in the squad to face Everton later on today.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech and midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be back for the home game against Watford.

"The other night we lost Mathieu Flamini with a hamstring injury, so he will be out," Wenger said.

"He will be replaced by [Calum] Chambers. Everybody else should be available.

"We have a check-up this [Friday] morning, but all the other signs look quite positive.

"[Jack] Wilshere is showing good signs now of recovery, Santi [Cazorla] is a bit slower.

"The players who will definitely be back from injury [after the international break] will be [Aaron] Ramsey, [Petr] Cech and maybe Flamini. But I don't think Cazorla or Wilshere will be straight after the international break."
