Arsene Wenger has confirmed the latest team and injury news ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

Understandably the boss was quizzed about the possible involvement of new signing’s Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez while he also gave an update on the fitness of Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey.

Mustafi completed his move from Valencia shortly before the summer deadline day and has been training with his new team mates this week so is in contention to make his debut against the Saints this weekend.

Lucas Perez is also pushing to make his debut after sealing a £17m move from Deportivo La Coruna but Wenger says hasn’t decided yet whether either player will start on Saturday.

Unfortunately Ramsey won’t be available this weekend as he isn’t fully recovered from a hamstring injury that he suffered during our defeat to Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season. The Welshman is expected to be back to face PSG in midweek.

However, there is better news on Iwobi as the boss has confirmed that the youngster is available for selection after recovering from the thigh injury that he also picked up against the Merseysiders last month.

So the squad looks to be in decent shape heading in to the Southampton game with Danny Welbeck, Per Mertesacker, Carl Jenkinson and Gabriel our only other absentees as they continue to recover from long-term injuries.
