See: Arsenal vs Manchester City: Wenger gives update on injured players – Carabao Cup

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has given update on his team facing Manchester City in the Carabao Cup this weekend.

Addressing a press conference on Friday, Wenger said Nigeria forward, Alex Iwobi will feature in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

There were doubts over Iwobi’s availability after he picked up injury during Arsenal’s 2-1 loss to Swedish side, Ostersunds in the Europe League round of 32 on Thursday.

Wenger, who will lead Arsenal out in his 13th cup final with the club on Sunday, added that late decision will be made on midfield, Aaron Ramsey before the game.

He said, “We don’t know what stage Alex Iwobi is at.

“We have no injuries from last night. A few were rested, they are all alright. We have to make a decision on Aaron Ramsey.

“We will play all our regular players. We want to win it. We want the fans to go home happy.”

“What counts for me is that we go into the final with absolute desire to win it.

“We need to perform on the day and go home having done our job well – that is of course to win the game.

“Everybody expects a very exciting game and I think it will be. It’s a good opportunity for us.

On Mesut Ozil availability, Wenger added, “We have to see how he responds today but I think he will be alright.

“You want all your best players available and of course he is an important player for us.”

Wenger revealed he will retain David Ospina in goal for the final ahead of first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech.
