Laurent Koscielny: Facing three weeks out with a groin strain

Koscielny limped off after just four minutes at Goodison Park and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said afterwards he expected the centre-back to be out for three weeks.

"He has a groin strain. That's usually three weeks," said Wenger.

Wenger was pleased to leave Merseyside with a point despite his side dominating the last 10 league meetings with Everton, winning eight and drawing just two.

"It was a game of big physical intensity, we had a good start and after that I felt Everton came back into it and their direct game was always a threat," he said.

"There are regrets on the goal we conceded but 1-1 is a fair result and it is a good point here.

"We needed to show great spirit to get away with a point and I am pleased with the effort they put into the game."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
