Wenger hits back at Mourinho over Lacazette dig

Wenger hits back at Mourinho over Lacazette dig

Aside from long-term absentee Santi Cazorla, the only fitness concern Arsenal have is centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, who had to be replaced early on against United.

He appeared to hurt himself while being robbed of possession by Jesse Lingard, with his manager revealing after the full-time whistle that he had no idea what the issue was.

The Germany global would have been highly unlikely to feature against BATE anyway with his sole Europa League appearance in 2017-18 to date coming in the original clash with the Belarusian champions back in September. "It's [Mustafi being back for the Southampton game] a possibility - if not Southampton, it will be [for] West Ham".

The Gunners are already assured of progressing in top spot and Wenger will continue his policy of mass rotation for the competition with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud expected to come in.

Wenger, though, says he can not put the needs of global football ahead of his duties to the Gunners. "He was sick and after that I didn't change the squad". "He was sick a few weeks ago but overall in training, he looks very sharp".

Arsene Wenger has rejected Jose Mourinho's jibe that the Arsenal manager had falsely claimed Alexandre Lacazette would not play against Manchester United.

Asked how winning the group would affect his team selection, Wenger said: "Not too much, because I have many players available who need competition".

"You can do ice skating by bringing your child on and just making sure nothing happens to him, or (you can do) ice skating violently". Leave him at home?

"Matic is injured but will play for sure, I'm telling the truth but he will play for sure", Mourinho declared towards the end of a lengthy injury update. That's what I was told. "We'll play an experienced team".

We are now entering the most gruelling part of the season with Arsenal playing a game every three days, starting tonight against BATE, so surely Wenger will have little choice but to use every single player in the squad or risk injuries and fatigue.
