Koscielny likely to miss Turkey trip

Laurent Koscielny is back in the squad

Arsene Wenger says he's unlikely to select Laurent Koscielny for the midweek trip to Galatasaray.

The France defender sat out the 3-2 defeat at Stoke City as a precaution after playing two games in four days following an eight-week lay-off.

Arsenal have booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League and, although top spot in Group D is not beyond them, Wenger doesn't want to risk certain players.

"A few players [will not travel] because there’s not a lot at stake and we have given a lot in the last two weeks"

"A few players [will not travel] because there’s not a lot at stake and we have given a lot in the last two weeks," said Wenger. "We have to recover a little bit.

"Alexis will not travel and I don’t think I can play, for example, Koscielny. He didn’t play on Saturday and I don’t see why I should risk him for a game where’s there’s not a lot at stake.

"First place hypothetically, but there’s maybe a 10 per cent chance."
