Arsène Wenger will assess his options at left-back after the Manchester United game.

The Frenchman has been without four frontline full-backs since Andre Santos joined Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna and Carl Jenkinson on the sidelines on December 6, and injuries to Thomas Vermaelen and Francis Coquelin have aggravated the problem.

Wenger has a little over a week to bring in a replacement before the transfer window closes but, for now, he has nothing to report.

"Before Sunday's game nobody will come in so we will have now to focus on the players [we have]," said Wenger.

"I will assess the situation after the game on Sunday but until then nothing will happen now for us."
