Arsene Wenger: Injury and fitness update on Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud could all feature tomorrow against Leicester City.

The three were not fit enough to face Liverpool at the end of last week as the Gunners kicked off their Premier League campaign with a disappointing 4-3 home defeat.

But the French defender is expected to start with the other two internationals starting the game on the bench.

"Both of them [Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi] have minor muscular problems," Wenger said ahead of tomorrow's game.

"I think they will be out until after the international break but we feared worse - for Iwobi especially. It is a thigh problem for Iwobi, and Ramsey is a hamstring that will require two or three weeks.

"It is better news than we feared at the start.

"He [Gabriel Paulista] is doing well, but it is six to eight weeks. He is in the boot, but it is very difficult to assess him because he cannot walk properly at the moment.

"Yes, I will consider them [Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny] for selection this weekend.

"Of course they have not played any games for a while, so I have to be selective and I cannot go for the three because that would be too risky.

"But basically with Laurent Koscielny I have no choice! If I have to take a gamble on one, it's certainly on him."
