Wenger defends Arsenal medical staff (AUDIO)

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended his medical team after criticism from Fabio Capello over Jack Wilshere's injury.

The England boss claimed Wilshere picked up the injury whilst on national team duty in June, and instead of receiving immediate attention when he was released from the squad, instead he was allowed to go on holiday.

The midfielder will now be out for five months after surgery on his problem, which Arsenal claim he actually picked up in a pre-season match against the New York Red Bulls in July, but Wenger is staying optimistic over the 19-year old.

In the Champions League tonight there's a headache for the Gunners as they prepare to face Olympiakos at the Emirates, with Laurent Koscielny, Theo Walcott and Gervinho all missing but expected to be fit for Sunday's North London Derby at Tottenham.
