Goalkeeper injury worries continue for Wenger

Ian Watson

Arsene Wenger is set to be without his first and second choice keepers once more when Arsenal head to Crystal Palace on Monday.

Petr Cech and David Ospina both sat out Wednesday’s 3-0 win over West Ham due to injuries with Emiliano Martinez keeping a clean sheet and Matt Macey deputising on the bench.

Martinez is set to keep the gloves for Monday’s all-London clash, with Wenger offering this injury update during his press conference on Friday morning.

“From Wednesday, nobody should be out. Francis Coquelin is back available, he had problem with his back. He’s in contention again.

“I don’t believe Cech will be available for Monday night, nor Ospina.”

Wenger also confirmed that Koscielny will miss the trip to Selhurst Park.
