Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Watford.
“Basically we have the same squad available as last week,” he said.
“We need a first win after our game at Leicester and of course the international break comes too soon. We have players going away with their national teams who aren’t ready to play for us because they have been away with their national teams!
“There are still some who are little bit behind.”
The boss was also quizzed about the comments of Wales boss Chris Coleman who questioned why Aaron Ramsey was used on the opening day of the season when Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud were left on the bench.
The Welsh international picked up a hamstring injury and will miss Wales’ games during the Interlull, but the Arsenal manager said Ramey’s preparation was sufficient for him to play in the first game.
“Because he didn’t play the final, or semi-final, or quarter-final, so he was out two weeks before Giroud and Ozil, and he did all the preparation,” he said.
“That’s the only reason.”
Wenger admitted he had still to make a decision over the involvement of Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil, both of whom he considers a little short of full fitness, but both are expected to be in the squad tomorrow.
