Arsene Wenger met with the press ahead of Arsenal’s game at Southampton on Wednesday night.

Granit Xhaka went off injured, again, against Manchester United with an ankle problem. Asked about his team news, Wenger said, “We have a real check up today,” before adding that it is Laurent Koscielny who is a major doubt for the game on Wednesday rather than Granit. The defender will undergo a fitness test today (Tuesday).

“We have some risk for Koscielny, he might not be available,” Wenger said.

“Xhaka is similar but he looks to have recovered well and the news for him is better but he will have a test as well today.”

About the rumour that Danny Welbeck had picked up an injury, Wenger said, “No, he is ok”.
