Cape Town - Arsenal will against be able to rely on France right-back Mathieu Debuchy and number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for Tuesday's Champions League group stage match against Galatasaray.

Wenger told the Arsenal Player revealed that Mathieu Debuchy and Wojciech Szczesny have recovered from injury.

"To make it as simple as possible, I have 11 experienced players and six young players on the bench. That means I have nothing to hide. Debuchy is back with us and will play, Szczesny is back in goal," Wenger told the club's website.

Wenger also revealed that Danny Welbeck has a slight knee strain but should be fit for the Gunners next English Premiership fixture, against Newcastle on Saturday.

"Mertesacker, Chambers will play because Gibbs did not travel, Bellerin at left-back. Then you have Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Flamini, Podolski, Sanogo and Campbell. The players who needed it stayed behind - like Cazorla, Sanchez, Gibbs, Giroud is not qualified".

There was more cause for concern as Wenger spoke about in-form playmaker Alexis Sanchez' fitness.

Wenger said: "Sanchez had a groin problem for some time, and he has played 27 games." 

On Tuesday, Galatasaray host Arsenal at the Türk Telekom Arena, with kick-off at 21:45.
