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:
- Arsenal train ahead of Basel game
- 'Xhaka plays Xhaka, it's a family job'
- 'What I learnt in my spell at Basel'
- 'Let's go from good job to good job'
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.
