Arsene Wenger says that the knee injury suffered by Francis Coquelin is ‘more severe’ than the calf problem which forced Mikel Arteta off today.
The Spaniard replaced Coquelin after the Frenchman had injured his knee in a 50-50 challenge in midfield, but had to leave the field just after half-time himself.
The Arsenal manager wouldn’t speculate on how long either player would be out, but it’s clearly a big worry to lose Coquelin, while yet another injury for the Arsenal captain looks like his time at the club could be coming to a sad end.
Speaking about the game itself, Wenger said, “We did give everything until the end. Maybe we were a bit too sure of ourselves. Overall it was a bad day. We scored an own goal, missed a penalty and missed a lot of chances.
“It is very disappointing.”
