Ozil and Ramsey were involved in training yesterday but Wenger said Ozil had struggled with illness this week while the Wales worldwide needs more time prove his fitness after returning from a groin injury.

"We have to lift titles".

"Monday's shock FA Cup defeat by Wigan was a major setback".

Ospina has made one Premier League appearance this season, but has been Wenger's regular goalkeeper for all cup competitions, including the Europa League. Vastly more important than applause for pretty football, however, is the pressing need for the club to secure their first trophy under Guardiola.

He has exceptional teams and he is managing them very well...

The final of the EFL Carabao Cup is upon us and the showdown will air live and exclusively on Kwesé TV this Sunday 25 February.

"The team is well on track to have the best Premier League campaign ever, smashing the records for most points and goals", Bajkowski writes. "It would be absolutely stupid of us to think we have a stroll; we could have a bad surprise".
