Arsene Wenger: Early team news for Saturday's friendly game against Western Sydney Wanderers


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Aaron Ramsey will feature in Saturday's friendly game against Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Welshman has successfully recovered from injury and is ready to enjoy a healthy campaign with the Gunners.

Goalkeeper David Ospina is also expected to feature as his future at the Emirates remains unclear.

"I'm cautious about having too many [central defenders] but I don't think so," he told reporters.

"[Laurent] Koscielny has not played, Gabriel [Paulista] is injured, [Shkodran] Mustafi was not there, [Rob] Holding is not here. Most of these players can play on the flanks as well.

"Laurent is suspended in the first two games of the season so I do not need to take any gamble with him.

"He'll work very hard physically and there's no reason for him to take the risk of getting injured. With [Aaron] Ramsey, I was a bit cautious as well because the last few seasons he's been troubled with injury. I wanted to give him a good build up, a good foundation. He will play on Saturday night.

"[David] Ospina just came back. I have three keepers and I will rotate on Saturday."
