Arsene Wenger gives full injury update, reveals if Ozil and Sanchez will face Chelsea on Sunday


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil should be fit to face Chelsea on Sunday.

The Germany international is nursing an ankle problem but will train with the rest of the squad tomorrow morning.

And Alexis Sanchez could make a surprise start after fully recovering from flu.

"We have basically everyone available to choose from on Sunday," Wenger told reporters.

"Today in training we didn't have [Mesut] Ozil, but he should be alright, and [Aaron] Ramsey, who should be alright as well. Some players are just coming back like Alexis and Mustafi, and I haven't decided yet if I will involve them or not.

"Ramsey had a little muscular problem, and Ozil a a little ankle problem. They will train on Saturday.

"He [Francis Coquelin] is not available. He got injured in the Emirates Cup but we don't think it will be too bad - two weeks.

"He [Gabriel Paulista] is a long-term injury but he starts to run again now.

"He [Alexis Sanchez] is good, as you can see from training. He had a good rest, so he needs to work on his fitness but once he is in a game he is sharp. He doesn't look like he has been away.

"He is over the flu, yes. I told you it was never a problem for us."
