Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup clash with the Mugsmashers.
There’s bad news as Santi Cazorla will miss the game through illness, with Wenger saying he’s bed-ridden and unavailable.
Mathieu Flamini is the only addition to the squad. He returns from suspension after his red card at Southampton and is in line to start the game having had a nice three week rest.
But there’s no return yet for Thomas Vermaelen who is still out with a knee injury. Pressed on possible changes, Wenger said, “Will I rest one, two or three players? I don’t know yet. We have one focus: to win this game.”
And asked if Liverpool are the last team Arsenal would want to play after the game at Anfield, he replied, “No, I would say they are first team we want to play. It’s chance to put things right.”
