Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Gabriel Paulista and Olivier Giroud


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that striker Theo Walcott could be in the squad to face Hull City on Saturday.

The Englishman didn't feature in mid-week against Paris Saint-Germain but is expected to start against the Tigers.

Defender Gabriel Paulista has resumed training with the rest of the squad but will not be available for tomorrow's game.

"[Theo] Walcott could be back in the squad, I have to check how well he came out of the session today," Wenger told reporters.

"I haven't spoken with the medical people yet.

"[Aaron] Ramsey is of course still out. I hoped [he would be back] but he is not ready. It [the Nottingham Forest game] will come too early I think. We are cautious with him because I do not want any setback with his hamstring. At the moment, Tuesday is too early for him.

"Gabriel [Paulista] is back in normal training, I don't think he will be included but he might play on Tuesday night. The injury situation is not bad at the moment.

"[Petr] Cech will be back, yes.

"Olivier Giroud got a little knock on Tuesday night. I have to check if he is fit and available."
