Wenger delivers latest Arsenal injury update after Man United defeat
The Arsenal manager speaks about injuries to Jack Wilshere and Wojciech Szczesny
Arsene Wenger admitted that it is too early to tell the severity of Jack Wilshere’s injury after he was forced off in the second half of Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on Saturday.
The England midfielder was substituted after sustaining what appeared to be an ankle injury after a heavy challenge from Paddy McNair.
Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was also forced off in the second half after picking up a knock in a collision with Kieran Gibbs.
And speaking after the game, Wenger said: “Wojciech is not bad. Jack I don’t know how bad it is because he tried to stay on and couldn’t. It could be an ankle problem, I don’t know how bad it is.”
Asked about his overall take on the game, the Frenchman added: “It’s a game that we dominated for 80 per cent of the time and we haven’t dominated a game like that against Manchester United for a long time.
“At the end of the day we were not efficient enough in the final third.”
