Report: Chambers out for two more weeks


According to Football.London, Calum Chambers is still two weeks from fitness having picked up a hip problem in Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup a month ago.

The England international, who recently signed a two-year contract extension, had been expected to be back in action in time for tomorrow’s game with Red Star Belgrade but did not travel to Serbia.

It’s thought the 22-year-old will now target the return-leg of the Europa League tie with Red Star, who travel to the Emirates on 2 November.

With Shkodran Mustafi sidelined for four weeks by a hamstring problem picked up in the Interlull, Laurent Koscielny struggling with a persistent Achilles injury and substituted at the weekend with calf tightness, the Gunners are a little short on experience in the centre of defence.

Per Mertesacker, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Rob Holding are all options for tomorrow night.
