Updates on Coquelin, Gibbs, Mustafi, Lucas

Francis Coquelin limped off in the first half of our Emirates Cup opener against Benfica on Saturday.

The French midfielder missed the following day’s defeat against Sevilla through injury and, after the game, Arsène Wenger revealed the latest on the 26-year-old.

on Francis Coquelin…
He looks like he has a scan tomorrow and I don’t think he will be available for the weekend. He doesn’t look bad, but he will not be available. [It is an] ankle problem, ligament.

on Kieran Gibbs…
He has been sick over the weekend. He was supposed to play for the reserves on Thursday night at Boreham Wood but couldn’t play. At the moment he’s not available.

on whether he sees Gibbs’ future at Arsenal…
He has one year to go [on his contract]. 

on whether Mustafi will miss the Leicester game…
It depends. Mustafi has come back today and will have tests during the week. For the weekend [Community Shield], he will be short.

on what the latest is on Lucas Perez…
He is injured at the moment.

on whether Lucas is likely to feature during the season…
Yes.

on Lucas’ agent saying his shirt number was given away without consultation…
Well look, we sort that out internally.
