Bacary Sagna will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Arsenal’s trip to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

The 30-year-old right-back has picked up a hamstring strain and will be assessed in the build-up to the weekend’s trip to The Hawthorns.

“The only uncertainty we have could be Bacary Sagna who had a little hamstring problem,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website. “He has a scan today [Thursday] and from then on we will assess his situation.

“Everybody else came out of the Napoli game without a major problem so they should all be available.”

Wenger is also hoping to have playmaker Santi Cazorla available for selection after the forthcoming international break. “He [Cazorla] is not in contention [for Sunday’s match] but he could be not far after the international break,” he continued.

And on striker Yaya Sanogo, Wenger concluded: “He is on a good way after his back problem. He will be the same, after the international break.”

Arsenal head into Sunday’s clash top of the Premier League table and looking for their 11th straight win in all competitions.
