Arsene Wenger has given injury update ahead of Sunday’s clash against Watford in their FA Cup tie.
Wenger revealed two key defenders will be fit for the clash, he revealed Mertesacker and Gabriel will be fit and would start against Watford.
Per and Gabriel suffered a knock at midweek against Hull City.
“From the Hull game we lost Ramsey,” Wenger said. “Gabriel and Mertesacker should be available.
“Koscielny is not far, will I risk him? I havent made a decision yet. Coquelin is coming back from a suspension and Bellerin was not in the squad but is available.
“Gabriel has not trained but Mertesacker has. I don’t think Gabriel has lost too much fitness but we will see. My gut feeling is that he will be available.
“Koscielny will join training tomorrow and then we will maybe take a gamble on a guy who has had one training session. If I get advice from the medical team I will do it.”
