Gunners bench Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has played down fears that the Arsenal squad has been hit by two more injuries from the clash with Everton.

First-half goals from Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi were enough to secure an important 2-0 victory for Arsenal at Goodison Park as they look to maintain any faint hopes of pipping Leicester City and Tottenham to the Premier League title.

However, Wenger appeared to have been dealt a blow on Saturday as Mesut Ozil went down clutching his ankle after a challenge with John Stones while an awkward clash with Romelu Lukaku and Gabriel left David Ospina in serious pain.

But according to the Arsenal boss, there should be no new injury worries ahead of the international break at least.

“Ospina is a kick in the back. It’s just in a few days, I think they [Ospina and Ozil] should be alright.” Wenger told reporters.

“It’s an ankle problem [for Ozil] but it looks more a kick than a ligament problem,”

The Gunners’ next fixture will be a clash with Watford at the Emirates stadium in early April – a repeat of last weekend’s FA Cup tie which resulted in an upset.
