Wenger facing major injury headache ahead of Watford clash

Wenger facing major injury headache ahead of Watford clash

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals that Skhodran Mustafi will be missing for up to six weeks with a thigh injury.

The Gunners are unbeaten since their loss to Liverpool at the end of August, but going into the game against the Hornets, they could be without two of their key defenders in Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny.

Mustafi suffered the muscle problem while on worldwide duty with Germany against Azerbaijan as the holders secured their place at the 2018 World Cup on the back of 10 straight qualifying wins in Group C.

Wenger said: "I have concerns about my defence because of the injuries, and I need to think about that".

The former Schalke 04 man has made six appearances in all competitions during the current campaign. Sanchez won't be back with us until tomorrow.

The Arsenal boss has admitted Sead Kolasinac is also struggling with a hip problem suffered playing for Bosnia.

Alexis Sanchez will be assessed when he returns from worldwide duty after he received "special treatment" following Chile's 3-0 defeat to Brazil.

"Jack is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time", Wenger said.

"We will assess Sanchez when he comes back, I watched the Brazil game and he got some special treatment in that game".

"Koscielny will have a test tomorrow", Wenger added.

Wenger said contract talks with German worldwide Ozil, who is in the final year of his deal, were progressing well.

Eighth-placed Watford have just one win against Arsenal in eight Premier League meetings but will look to build on their decent start.

The Blues are away to Crystal Palace, yet to even score in their seven successive defeats this season let alone take any points, while the Gunners make the short trip to Watford in their match.
