Arsene Wenger spoke to the media ahead of Arsenal’s match against Burnley at the Emirates on Sunday and gave the latest fitness updates on a few players.
There was good news ahead of our Premier League clash as Hector Bellerin, who picked up an ankle injury in training recently is back in the squad to face Burnley.
Francis Coquelin, who’s been out with a hamstring injury is also back, as is Kieran Gibbs, who picked up a knock against West Brom on Boxing Day.
Wenger on team news: "From last week, Bellerin, Coquelin & Gibbs are back in the group. Not Walcott." #AFC

Theo Walcott isn’t quite there. He’s suffering with a calf injury and although he’s training, he’s about two weeks away, Wenger says.
Olivier Giroud trained yesterday (Wednesday), which is encouraging as he was subbed off in the 60th minute against Swansea after looking as if he was carrying an ankle injury.
