Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielders Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky are back in full training.

The Englishman is yet to feature this season with the Czech suffering a fresh injury after making his comeback against Burnley in the FA Cup last January.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech will not feature today against Watford but will be back in the squad for the tricky away game at West Ham United.

"All the players who were on international duty have come back in good shape," Wenger explained.

"[Jack] Wilshere and [Tomas] Rosicky are back in full training. Basically they are all progressing well.

"It is his [Wilshere's] first week back in full training and we'll see how he responds to that, but the first signs are quite good. We'll assess our options next week.

"Santi [Cazorla] has started to run, but is still a few weeks away I think. I hope [he will play again this season] because he has started to run.

"We have to always be a bit cautious, because you never know how people will respond to training sessions, but at the moment he looks like he has a chance to be completely fit to respond again before the end of the season, and to be competitive.

"[Petr] Cech will join in training today, but I haven't decided if he will be in the squad or not.

"[Aaron] Ramsey will not be available for this weekend, but hopefully next weekend.

"[Mathieu] Flamini is short for this weekend but could be available next weekend [and Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain is progressing well."
