Arsene Wenger met with the press on Friday morning ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Swansea on Saturday.

As usual, he gave updates on the state of the squad and injured players. Here’s what we learned:

“We basically have the same squad,” Wenger told the press before confirming the following players would return to the squad:

  • Laurent Koscielny
  • Petr Cech
  • Mesut Ozil
  • Alexis Sanchez


He also confirmed that both Hector Bellerin (ankle) and Francis Coquelin (hamstring) will miss the game but believes they could return for the Burnley game next week.

Theo Walcott is out for three and a half weeks, Wenger confirmed and will not return for 1-2 more weeks.
