Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave updates on player fitness ahead of the Premier League match against Burnley.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Jack Wilshere is carrying a slight problem ahead of the game against Burnley.

Wilshere has been one of Arsenal's most important players this season and the boss also revealed that Kieran Gibbs will have a test ahead of the game.

"There is a slightly problem with Wilshere - Gibbs has a test."

However, Wenger played down the injury to Wilshere suggesting that it's short term.

"He got a kick on his knee, it is very, very short-term."

The boss revealed that Theo Walcott wasn't ready to start, despite Burnley being considered a potentially good team to fit him back in against.

"Walcott is not completely ready. He's been out for too long to start."

Wenger also gave an insight into his thoughts ahead of playing against Burnley, with Sean Dyche's side likely to sit deep and defend hard against the Gunners.

"We want to be good enough to get around teams who try and stop us from playing."

"Our attitude and dedication has been fantastic. On the efficiency front we could do better."

Wenger was also defensive when quizzed on Arsenal's position with regards to the bookies and the Premier League title.

"[Our title odds] do not consider the teams we have played. I have a strong belief we'll come back."

On another note, Wenger refused to get into drawing his Invincibles team with the current Chelsea side, suggesting it's too early to judge the Blues.

"It's too early [to say that Chelsea can emulate the 'Invincibles'."
