Coquelin injury short-term, says Wenger

Arsene Wenger takes charge of training ahead of Arsenal's home Champions League clash against Basel on Wednesday

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has allayed fears that Francis Coquelin could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines, describing the midfielder’s knee injury as “short-term”.

Coquelin was forced off in the first half of Arsenal’s 3-0 Premier League win over Chelsea on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Frenchman missed around two months of last season with a knee injury, but Wenger played down fears of a recurrence ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League match against Basel on Wednesday.

“Francis Coquelin is out for the game tomorrow – it should be a short-term injury. The scan was quite positive,” Wenger told reporters on Tuesday.

Arsenal drew 1-1 with Paris St Germain in their opening Group A game.
