  • Koscielny left has missed three league games for Arsenal

Arsenal are ready to thrust Laurent Koscielny back into action this weekend amid fears Shkodran Mustafi will miss at least a month with a thigh injury.

Mustafi suffered the muscle problem while on global duty with Germany during the first half against Azerbaijan as the holders secured their place at the 2018 World Cup on the back of 10 straight qualifying wins in Group C.

Mustafi injured his thigh on global duty with Germany and it was not clear how long he would be sidelined for until manager Arsene Wenger confirmed today that it was approximately one month.

Wenger has confirmed that the 25-year-old will be out for between a month and six weeks, meaning he could make his return in the north London derby against Tottenham following the final worldwide break of 2017.

'I didn't expect him to play and Germany had already qualified.

Sead Kolasniac, who has impressed so far this season at left-back, has come back from worldwide duty with a minor hip problem too, which is being assessed today.

"Koscielny has a definite final test tomorrow", the Arsenal boss added. At the moment, he's not available. "But he trained on his own and the first signs are positive, so we chose to give him a test tomorrow", he added.

With Laurent Koscielny a real doubt for Saturday evening also and Calum Chambers still on the mend from an injury sustained last month.

"It was a very physical game". Sanchez won't be back with us until tomorrow.

Wenger said contract talks with German worldwide Ozil, who is in the final year of his deal, were progressing well. Fringe players such as Mathieu Debuchy might be called on as Wenger will look to scrape through this coming week with the hope of no more repercussions.
