As usual, Arsene Wenger spoke to the press on Friday morning ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash at the Emirates against Middlesbrough.
The boss admitted that there were doubts over Santi Cazorla, who was subbed off in the 67th minute during Arsenal’s midweek clash against Ludogorets, and he faces late fitness tests.
He also gave injury updates on Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey.
Wenger spoke about Alexis and Mesut Ozil’s contracts and pointed out how 28-year-old Ozil is in his prime. He wants them both to stay at Arsenal.
