As we prepare to take on Crystal Palace in our first game of the year 2017, Arsene Wenger has given out fitness news from the Arsenal camp.

During an interview with pressmen at London Colney on Thursday morning, he talked about the status of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Shkodran Mustafi.

Should we begin with the positives? No, I think it's better you leave here smiling, so I'll go with the bad side first

Scans on Gibbs has given results that will rule him out of the New Year fixture. The left-back was taken off during our win against West Brom and it has now been confirmed that he has inflammation on his knee. This shouldn't keep him out for long. Walcott is still missing.

Danny Welbeck has returned to training. However, our next game may come too early for him. As for Chamberlain, he will make a comeback to training on Saturday.

Now guess who's back! It's our hard rock, Mustafi. He has since overcome his hamstring problem and is in contention for selection for Palace's visit to the Emirates.
