Arsene Wenger has spoken to the press ahead of the Borussia Dortmund game tomorrow and confirmed the news that Nacho Monreal misses out.
He also admitted there was a ‘little problem’ with Calum Chambers but hoped the young Englishman would be recovered in time to play tomorrow.
“Monreal didn’t travel,” said Wenger, “and we have a little problem with Chambers but he should be alright.”
It seems the former Southampton man is suffering from tonsillitis and is rated 50:50 to play.
He also revealed that Yaya Sanogo is suffering from a hamstring problem and didn’t yet have a definite time-frame for Mathieu Debuchy’s absence, saying only that it would be for a longer period.
Hector Bellerin has made the trip to Germany, with Wenger saying, “He is ready to play”.
Needs must, we guess.
