Big Injury Blow – Arsenal Defender Ruled Out For Four Weeks

Arsenal are sweating over the fitness of Francis Coquelin and Laurent Koscielny after both the players were forced off during their 3-3 draw against Bournemouth on Tuesday (3 January).

The Gunners were 3-0 down with 20 minutes to play but goals from Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Olivier Giroud saved a point for Arsene Wenger’s team but it came at a cost as the French duo were forced off with injuries. Coquelin was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after he limped off with a suspected hamstring injury, while Koscielny was replaced by Gabriel Paulista with 25 minutes still left on the clock but the nature of the injury to the defender was unclear, according to the Mirror.
