Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have a “90 per cent” chance of being available for Arsenal’s clash with Norwich City on Saturday, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

Wilshere has been sidelined with an ankle problem, while Walcott has been missing due to a groin injury picked up on international duty with England.

But Wenger has said that the duo should be available for selection for Saturday’s Premier League game at Emirates Stadium.

“Jack has joined normal training since Wednesday and Theo should join in tomorrow [Friday]. They are 90 per cent available for Saturday,” said Wenger.

Wenger also revealed that Tomas Rosicky is a serious doubt for Saturday’s game after the midfielder picked up a hamstring problem during his man-of-the-match display at West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

Wenger added: “The other uncertainty we have from last Saturday is Tomas Rosicky, who has a little hamstring irritation.

“His involvement is yet to be decided as well but it’s fair to say that he is a big doubt for Saturday. And of course, Per Mertesacker will be out because of his red card.”

Arsenal are currently fifth in the Premier League table but can leapfrog north London rivals Tottenham into fourth place with victory over the Canaries.
