After beating Manchester City to book a place at Wembley for the FA Cup final against Chelsea, the Gunners will sure be brewing with and exuding so much confidence.

Arsenal will be looking to build on their recent feat against the Citizens as they take on Premier League defending Champions Leicester City this Wednesday at the Emirates.

Ahead of the crunch tie with the Foxes, Wenger has had his press conference in which he provided his latest injury and team news. He was a tad coy in delivery his update regarding the Arsenal team.

He did not reveal who is fit and available as his response reads:

“Basically we’re in unknown territory at the moment, yesterday the players were on recovery.

“Today we’ll check to see who is available or not. Overall we have nobody injured after the game.”

Arsenal knocked out Manchester City out of the FA Cup in the semi-final but the winner came in extra time as the players had to play for a 120mins. They are jaded and on the recovery pane but they should be fit enough to be able to come-off the Foxes game with three points.

This second half of the League has turned worse for Arsenal with the team struggling to win away from home. We’ve only had one win in the last five away League games and plummeted out of the top four of the table.

Our Champions League qualification fate does not only lie in the performance of the team, we’ll be hoping that the Manchester clubs and Liverpool drop many points as the League comes to a wrap.

There are wide reports that Chamberlain is a doubt for the Leicester City game after he was spotted on crutches leaving Wembley but Wenger dowsed the tension after he confirmed the injury wasn’t serious.

“It was precautionary,” he said. “It’s not a bad injury, we’ll test him today.

“It’s a foot injury, it was a kick.”

A win for Arsenal will move us to sixth on the table and four point adrift Man City in fourth position.
