Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has provided an update about the injuries involving his squad ahead of their much-awaited clash against Manchester United on Sunday.
Speaking to the media ahead of the mammoth clash, Wenger said, “Laurent Koscielny will certainly be out. He has hamstring strain and it looks like it will be three weeks, something like that”.
This Sunday, the Emirates Stadium will not bear witness to midfield duo Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini. The Arsenal manager though, hopes for Francis Coquelin to be fit for the match to keep his chances of winning as high as possible.
Arsene Wenger told reporters, “Both Arteta and Flamini are out. Francis Coquelin should be OK”.
Arsenal boss Wenger will have a selection headache now that he will not be able to choose stars Laurent Koscielny, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini. Laurent Koscienly suffered a major hamstring strain that could sideline him for about three weeks in the 3-2 defeat that the Gunners suffered at the hands of Olympiakos last Tuesday night. This injury could make the centre-back miss quite a few games after the international break, namely, their ties against Watford, Bayern Munich and Everton.
Flamini on the other hand will miss out due to a hamstring injury while Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta is out because of a thigh strain.
