Arsene Wenger has given the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s North London derby.
Although there are still doubts over Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal is fit again and will in the squad, while the boss confirmed that Mesut Ozil will be missing for 3-4 weeks.
The German picked up a hamstring strain in midweek and early reports from people who didn’t know anything but were desperate for clicks said he could be out as long as 6 weeks.
Today, at his press conference, the manager said, ” It is a grade 2 hamstring strain. Lets say 4 weeks. When the minimum is three, the maximum is six weeks.”
He also gave an update on Aaron Ramsey who was expected back this weekend, and said, “He still has recurrent pains in his thigh, we have to be very cautious with him.
“When will he be back? I believe it is 2 more weeks.”
Kim Kallstrom is available for the first time and should be in the squad for the trip to White Hart Lane.
