Wenger reveals latest team news ahead of North London derby


Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of Sunday’s North London derby against Sp*rs

The Gunners come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Leicester City in midweek, and with a doubt over captain Laurent Koscielny.

The French international hurt his knee late in the game against Leicester, and it’s unclear yet whether he’ll be able to play at White Hart Lane.

“The uncertainly we have is about Laurent Koscielny,” he said. “The news we had yesterday was quite positive, so I hope he will be available.”

Asked what his chances were, the boss said, “60/40 – 60 that he plays.”

Shkodran Mustafi remains sidelined, with Wenger saying he expects the German to be back in ‘two weeks’.

Beyond that there don’t appear to be any new issues, which is good.
