London: The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that Fabregas would not be included in the squad for the Newcastle match while Nasri was "uncertain" to travel pending a fitness test.
"Cesc is not on strike. Cesc is not injured, he's not match fit. I don't want to go any deeper than that," Wenger said.
The Arsenal manager however, declined the reports that Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri were set to be sold on the eve of the Premier League campaign.
