Arsenal Handed Huge Blow As Wenger Confirms Koscielny Injury

Laurent-Koscielny Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Laurent Koscielny is out of the Hull City game with an Achilles problem.

Kos was released from the France squad last week after being diagnosed with ‘acute tendinitis’ in his Achilles.

There were hopes the issues would settle over the last 10 days and he’d be in contention this weekend.

However, speaking at his pre-match press conference this morning, Arsene has confirmed the injury has worsened and Koscielny won’t play any part against Hull.

The good news is he doesn’t require surgery, but we’re going to have to manage the injury with Kos only able to play when he doesn’t feel pain.

This leaves us in a precarious situation in defence as Calum Chambers is suspended so Arsene is going to have to choose between playing Nacho Monreal at centre-back or handing Isaac Hayden his debut.

    We do not want to continue talking about the stubbones of Arsene Wenger, what we want from him now is to make sure, he must win those games, he is to blame for all this problem, he sold Thomas and send Jenkinson on lean. He already knew he did not have enough defenders, Wenger should be blamed if the team lose games.
