Wenger will also decide late on whether or not to field Alexis Sanchez, who will in midweek worldwide action too, while Shkodran Mustafi has already been ruled out, and question marks remain over the fitness of Saed Kolasniac and Laurent Koscielny.

Although they have conceded 12 goals this season, which is a tally bettered by only two other teams in the whole division, nine of those goals came against Liverpool and Manchester City.

"He had a little hip problem but overall I haven't seen him yet", Wenger told a press conference.

Ozil has recovered from his knee injury and is expected to feature at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

"We won our first game of the season at home and I thought we'd be alright and then went to Crystal Palace".

'In Chile it's Sanchez. "Yesterday afternoon I watched the whole Brazil against Chile game to see how hard the game was".

Mike Laidlaw leaves BioWare, next Dragon Age still coming
But fans will be hoping that the wait for Dragon Age - and Laidlaw's next project, whatever it may be - is well worth the wait.

"The main reason is the way the team have welcomed me here", he said.

"I must say he got some special treatment - it was a very physical game and mentally I will have to assess the situation when he comes back tomorrow".

The Frenchman is now managing a defensive injury crisis following the global break.

As we reported earlier, Wenger also confirmed that Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury so it's vital Koscielny returns as soon as possible. The centre-back will have a late fitness test this week to see whether he will be okay for the trip to Watford, which Wenger will be praying for some positive news on. At the moment, he's not available.

"I will have to speak to him", said the Arsenal manager, whose side are fifth in the table after a good recent run of results. He trained on his own and the first signs are positive, so we made a decision to give him a test tomorrow. "But I have got more potential to get better and I want to show that in the coming games".
