Team news: Latest on Coquelin and Giroud

Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of our Champions League Group A clash against Basel at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

The boss gave an update on Francis Coquelin, and this is what he had to say:

on Coquelin’s injury…

He is out for the game tomorrow, but it should be a short-term injury because the scan was quite positive and I think it will be three weeks out.

on how he feels about the news…

It’s positive because last year during this period we got some bad news and a few long-term injuries and it was a handicap in our season. After you play always the same players and you lose a little bit of your edge physically. The fact is we have a compact squad, but of top quality, so to keep everybody together is a big plus.

on Giroud’s injury…

He is not available, he is suspended because he was sent off at PSG. He is a doubt for Sunday, we will see.


on if he will go on international duty…

I don’t know, it depends on the evolution of his injury.
