Arsenal team news: Injury update ahead of Barcelona Champions League game

Arsene Wenger said he has no injury worries ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League last 16 match against Barcelona.

The manager revealed Mesut Ozil was rested against Hull in the weekend’s FA Cup fifth round due to illness, with Aaron Ramsey also given a break.

“I believe the positive of the day is that [Danny] Welbeck came through quite well. He started for the first time in 10 months and he was one of the positives of the day,” he told after the 1-1 draw with Hull at the Emirates.

Gabriel is still a week away from returning, meaning he won’t get to face Barca, while Jack Wilshere is “three or four weeks” away, according to Wenger, while it is also too early for Santi Cazorla.
