Arsene Wenger is hoping that Francis Coquelin’s Knee injury does not prove to be too serious after the midfielder suffered the problem during Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday.
Coquelin had to be substituted in the 32nd minute against the Blues at The Emirates and was replaced by Granit Xhaka.
The midfielder missed a portion of last season with a knee problem and he will be hoping not to have suffered a similar injury.

Speaking in the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s win, Wenger admitted that he was not yet sure of the extent of the problem.
Wenger told BT Sport in his post-match interview:
“I hope it’s not serious. It’s a knee problem in the same place that he had last year, so I hope it’s not as long as last year.”
Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott handed Arsenal a convincing victory over their local rivals.
