Arsene Wenger provides triple injury boost ahead of Everton game

Wenger confirms trio will be alright to face Everton

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the club will retain the services of first-team trio Alexis Sanchez, Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny for Sunday's trip to Everton.

Ramsey and Sanchez missed the 2-1 defeat to Watford last weekend with fatigue from international exploits whilst Laurent Koscielny suffered a minor muscular problem - late into the Hornets game.

In a report covered by Evening Standard, Wenger has confirmed that the club will be able to call up the trio for Sunday's early kick-off from Goodison Park, he said: "Alexis, Koscielny and Ramsey will be alright."

Meanwhile, the likes of Danny Welbeck, Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers and David Ospina are all expected to be on the sidelines until after the international break.

Arsenal suffered a slightly surprising loss to Watford in their previous outing, but Wenger will want a strong response from his side against Ronald Koeman's men this weekend.

Everton had a tough game against Lyon in the Europa League in midweek, and this could play into the Gunners' hands with the Toffees having involved a majority of their first-team players versus Les Gones.
