Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger gave updates on player fitness and plans ahead of the final game of the season against Norwich City.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere could be back in the squad to face Norwich City this weekend.

Wilshere has been out of action with a foot injury he picked up playing for England in their friendly against Denmark earlier in the season.

"Ramsey is available again - Wilshere could be back in the squad. Kieran Gibbs is back as well," said the Frenchman.

It wasn't all good news on the injury front as the boss also confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out of action.

Wenger has given Arsenal fans a clear message, hoping the side finish the season with 79 points and he's also revealed that he thinks the Premier League title is destined for Manchester City.

"We'll go there to win and try to finish with 79 points - It will be a miracle if Man City don't win the league now and congratulations to them."

"It's been a very interesting title race. You feel Liverpool were very unlucky because they had a fantastic second half of the season."

Wenger also had some good news concerning one of his most important players, Laurent Koscielny.

He revealed that the Frenchman is closing on a new contract, while speculation has linked him with a £20 million exit this summer.

"Koscielny is close to signing a new contract."

The manager also seems to have identified the area his side need to improve ahead of next season, to achieve a Premier League title.

"We have been top 128 days but we failed in some big games in away from home."
