Arsenal are this week’s Monday night Premier League fixture with West Bromwich Albion heading to the Emirates Stadium.
It’s a must-win match for the Gunners and Arsene Wenger has given his team news ahead of the clash.
“Calum Chambers came off [against Doncaster] and will now be out until after the international break. He has a little recurrence of his hip problem,” Wenger revealed before running through a list of the potential absentees.

“Theo [Walcott] we will check today, we don’t think it is much.
“Danny Welbeck has a groin injury. He will be back, his target is Watford. That means after the international break. He won’t be available for England and not for us before the break.”
Wenger also revealed that Jack Wilshere came out of Wednesday’s match with Doncaster Rovers without any injury problems before giving an update on Mesut Özil.
“He is in training and will come back with the team training today or tomorrow,” Wenger continued.
So, it’s good news ahead of the West Brom game. Arsene Wenger has a strong squad to choose from with just Danny Welbeck and Francis Coquelin expected to miss the match, along with long-term absentee Santi Cazorla. Let’s hope Arsenal can take advantage of West Brom’s poor run of form and take all three points on Monday.
