Wenger proud of England contingent at Arsenal

Manager Arsene Wenger believes having a potential six Arsenal players in the England squad can only have a positive impact on the national team's progress.

Calum Chambers, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck were all part of Roy Hogdson's party for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia.

Forward Theo Walcott is close to a return from nine months out with the knee injury which saw him miss the World Cup and could well be back in contention for the England games against Slovenia and Scotland in November.

I am very proud when I see five England players wearing the Arsenal shirt and that we also have Walcott, who is not there (yet).

We do some work to develop, so that these players are together for long time at Arsenal and develop together.

Even for England it is important. If they can do well at Arsenal and play for England, England will be strong. That is for sure, because they will play against anybody in the world and, to have five or six players in the team, they know how to play, so the confidence grows.

Pellegrini unconcerned about Ebola threat

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has no concerns over players such as Yaya Toure visiting West Africa despite the outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Toure returned from the Ivory Coast on Thursday after having played against the DR Congo in an African Nations Cup qualifier.

The venue for next year's finals is in major doubt, however, after the proposed host country, Morocco, raised fears about the Ebola outbreak.

No, really we are not concerned about it.

Yaya is not concerned either. I suppose he is sure about that problem - I don't think he will have any problems.

I don't know if he was screened, but for the moment he's okay.

– Manuel Pellegrini
