Arsene Wenger reveals positive news on injured Arsenal duo
BBC 606 reports that Arsene Wenger was optimistic about Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla after Arsenal's draw at Norwich
Arsene Wenger says Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla could both be available for Arsenal’s clash with Sunderland at The Emirates on Saturday.
The pair both suffered injuries during Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.
Koscielny was forced off early on the game after picking up a hip injury, while Cazorla suffered a knee problem late on during the stalemate at Carrow Road.
Arsenal also lost forward Alexis Sanchez to a hamstring injury picked up in the second half of the Premier League clash.
However, Wenger was quoted as saying after the game that he thought that both Cazorla and Koscielny’s injuries were short-term problems.
“Cazorla and Koscielny should be fine for next week,” Wenger was quoted as saying by BBC 606.
Arsenal return to Premier League action with a home clash against Sunderland on Saturday as they look to get back to winning ways following their draw at Norwich.
Sunday’s result left Arsenal in fourth place in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City.
