Arsenal go into their FA Cup game against Watford with a number of injuries affecting their squad.

Below is rundown of the treatment room and who’s in, out and been shaken all about:


Per Mertesacker

The BFG has recovered from smashing his face into the back of Manchester United and Hull’s Nick Powell head and will be available for selection.


The Brazilian has suffered no long-term consequences from the hamstring twinge he felt on Tuesday night. He has missed training all week but is expected to be in contention for a place against the Hornets.


Laurent Koscielny

Kos is still out with a calf problem, and while Arsene Wenger admitted he might take a gamble on him, I would doubt that very much. Especially with Barcelona just around the corner.


Aaron Ramsey

Rambo will miss at least four weeks with the thigh strain he picked up at Hull.

Jack Wilshere

Jack could be back for Watford in the league.

Santi Cazorla

Like Jack, the tiny Spaniard could be back for Watford in the league and is in line to return at the start of April, just as he predicted. Speaking this week, Wenger said of Jack and Santi “They are all progressing nicely, but this week and next week they have no chance.”

Tomas Rosicky

Tom is expected to be out for at least another month, probably another two.

Alex Oxlade-chamberlain

The Ox will be sidelined for another four-to-six weeks with his knee injury.

Petr Cech

The shot-stopper should be back for Arsenal’s game against Watford on April 2nd.

Unknown status

Mikel Arteta

is not listed as injured however it’s not clear if the club captain will be fit to return to the squad after returning to training last week.
