Wenger delivers latest injury update ahead of Hull trip
Arsenal look set to be without Mathieu Debuchy for Monday's Premier League clash with Hull City
Arsenal look set to be without Mathieu Debuchy for Monday’s Premier League clash with Hull City, Arsene Wenger has revealed.
Debuchy has endured an injury-hit season and has only recently recovered from a dislocated shoulder suffered at the start of the year.
The France international has picked up a minor hamstring injury and appears likely to miss Monday’s clash against Steve Bruce’s men.
“Everybody is in good shape, apart from Mathieu Debuchy, who has a little hamstring problem,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website.
“We don’t know how bad it is. Monday could be too early for him. He got the injury in training. Apart from that everybody should be available [for the Hull game].”
Wenger went on to confirm that the rest of his squad are in good shape as they approach the final few weeks of the season.
“We are at a period of the season where it’s going to be important to have everybody on board and to see everyone fit makes us stronger,” he continued.
“We are on a good run, we want to keep it going and the fact that we have plenty of [selection] opportunities is very interesting for me.”
The Gunners head to the KC Stadium early next week looking to keep up their fine run of form in the English top flight and close in on securing qualification for next season’s Champions League.
Arsenal are currently third in the Premier League table but can move above second-placed Manchester City if they win their game in hand.
