Arsene Wenger met with the press ahead of Arsenal’s game against Manchester United on Sunday.
As usual, the boss offered up the latest team news with updates on injured players.
Here’s what he revealed:
“We have still Granit Xhaka who is out from the kick he got in the game [against Spurs],” Wenger said.”
“Mustafi is back in normal training and that’s basically it.”
When asked to clarify Granit Xhaka’s injury, Wenger replied, “It’s a swollen ankle.”
Wenger also confirmed that David Ospina is back to full fitness but while Lucas Perez returned to training he will be out for the next two days as he picked up another ‘little problem’ in training.
So, at least we know why Granit was subbed off against Spurs on Sunday…
Later in the press conference he was asked for further information on Xhaka and if he was definitely out for Sunday. Wenger replied, “he has a little chance”.
