Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed that many of his walking wounded are on the mend, but are unlikely to be available for selection for the visit of West Bromwich Albion to the Emirates on Monday.
The good news on England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is that his injury is not as bad as originally feared and it will be a matter of days and not weeks till he returns to the side. However, the youngster will not make the squad for the West Brom game.
Wenger also said that Danny Welbeck has returned to full training today, and that Aaron Ramsey should also be back in training but was not very sure about whether they would feature against West Brom.
Meanwhile the news on centre back Shkodran Mustafi is that the defender is expected back by January.
