Wenger also confirmed that Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nacho Monreal are all struggling with injuries ahead of the Hammers’ visit to Emirates Stadium.

“We have plenty of uncertainties,” said Wenger. “We will have lots of tests today.

“Tomas Rosicky and Laurent Koscielny will undergo tests today. Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nacho Monreal are also doubts.”
