Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will be rested for Arsenal’s home Europa League opener against Cologne.
 
Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed the midfield duo have been afforded a rest for Thursday’s match at the Emirates Stadium after their international endeavours with Germany and Wales respectively.
 
Wenger did not confirm any of his other planned changes, although Petr Cech, Laurent Koscielny, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck and Granit Xhaka all missed training on Wednesday along with Ozil and Ramsey, perhaps with Sunday’s crucial away Premier League game against Chelsea in mind.
 
Francis Coquelin, meanwhile, is out for three weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury in the victory over Bournemouth last time out.
 
“Overall the injury situation is not too bad,” Wenger said.
 
“On the injury front we have no big problems, a few players have some response to the fact they played two international games like Ozil and Ramsey, who are rested completely.
