Wenger facing anxious wait as injuries start to pile-up


Arsene Wenger has an anxious wait ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Red Star Belgrade after the Gunners injury problems mounted in the wake of the 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday.

With Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez not involved at all due to injuries picked up in training, Arsenal lost Danny Welbeck – just back from a four week absence – with what appears to be a hamstring problem.

Meanwhile, Laurent Koscielny was only passed fit the day before the game, but he didn’t last the full 90 and had to come off with a calf problem.

Speaking after the game, Wenger said, “It looks to be a hamstring with Welbeck. I don’t really know because everybody is shocked in the dressing room. It looks a muscular problem.

“Koscielny is a muscular problem as well.”

As for whether Ramsey and Alexis would be available, he continued, “I don’t know yet, I have to see on Monday.”
