Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has no worry over any fresh injuries, as the Gunners are hosting Catalan giants Barcelona on Tuesday night on the Round-16 of the UEFA Champions League. Arsene Wenger explained that the key players who were rested for the FA Cup match against Hull City on Saturday will return to the starting lineup.

Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey were given rest after the former showed glimpses of illness and the latter was given a break after a string of games.

“I believe the positive of the day is that [Danny] Welbeck came through quite well. He started for the first time in 10 months and he was one of the positives of the day,” Arsene Wenger told Arsenal.com after the Gunners failed to score against Hull City on the fifth round of FA Cup, at the Emirates.

Arsene also shed light on some other players who are also on the injury list. He exposed that Gabriel will need one more week before he could start training with the team, while Santi Cazorla will be out-of-action for quite some time. According to him, Jack Wilshere could feature soon after a month, maximum.

Arsenal have never won the prestigious European tournament, but they have minuscule hope as they welcome current champions Barcelona to the Emirates Stadium. The team met in 2006 UEFA final, but Barcelona thrashed Arsenal to lift the trophy.

Arsenal are still in course of winning three trophies, but that of UEFA Champions League is highly unlikely, provided of their unstable campaign so far.
