Arsene Wenger confirms that midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are fit for the North London derby against Tottenham on Sunday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere will play a part in this Sunday's North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

There were doubts over whether the pair would feature due to minor injuries they picked up during the Gunners' 2-0 win over Fenerbahce in the Champions League on Tuesday.

"The news is quite positive," Wenger told the club's official website. "They just had bumps and bruises. They will be involved."

It's not good news for forward Lukas Podolski though, who has been ruled out for eight to 10 weeks with a hamstring injury.
