Arsene Wenger has revealed that Francis Coquelin will miss the Capital One cup game against Tottenham on Wednesday after sustaining a knee injury in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.
Arsenal fans would have feared the worst when the Frenchman went down in the first half, but he got up and continued to play on.
Their fears were not misguided, however, with Wenger admitting that Coquelin does have a knock.
“It is a little knee injury. I don’t know how long it will be … certainly not for midweek … I don’t know yet how long.”
Arsenal face Spurs on Wednesday, followed by an away game at Leicester and home tie against Olympiakos in the Champions League before the international break. As you may or may not know, their other options consist of two chocolate teapots.
Wenger on Coquelin: "He has a small knee problem" – MANY MONTHS OR DECADES OUT.
