But Wenger, speaking ahead of the Gunners' visit to Everton on Sunday, effectively pointed to his players' medals as proof of their quality and character.

So it's good news on the injury front.

Ramsey and Sanchez were left out of the squad for last weekend's defeat at Watford with Wenger citing muscle fatigue following their exertions on global duty with Chile and Wales, respectively.

'Alexis, Koscielny and Ramsey will be alright, ' confirmed Wenger.

'Welbeck is out. He has a groin problem, I think it will be two to three weeks before he is back. He will not be back before the worldwide break.

Williams shoved Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes into the advertising hoardings during Thursday's Europa League defeat, leading to an angry tussle involving players from both teams and at least one supporter, who has subsequently been identified and banned.


"Mustafi will not be back before the break, and Ospina as well". Mustafi is a bit worse than Ospina.

They are now sixth in the and sit two points behind Watford, who sit in the last Champions League spot.

Arsenal did field a much-changed side from the previous weekend, and will be able to make wholesale changes to the starting XI come the trip to Goodison Park without much hassle, and the French boss has revealed that it would be "impossible" to play again after the Europa League match-up.

The likes of Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette remained at home as Olivier Giroud's overhead kick helped an inexperienced side see off 10-man Red Star.

And that made it four games without a win for the Blues in all competitions.
