Arsene Wenger revealed that Laurent Koscielny is more likely to play against Spurs than not, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should also be fine to feature.
- Kos received treatment for knee injury during final 10 minutes of Leicester clash
- Ox was spotted leaving Wembley on Sunday on crutches
- Wenger insists Kos 60/40 to play in North London Derby
Oxlade-Chamberlain was left out of the starting line-up against Leicester after playing 120 minutes in the FA Cup at the weekend and leaving Wembley on crutches.
Wenger insists was just a precaution.
“He’ll be fit enough to start because it was more precautionary to leave him on the bench,” explained the manager during his presser.
“I didn’t want to take the gamble with him.”
The 23-year-old has been a huge part of Arsenal’s starting XI during the latter stages of this season and it would be a shame to see him sidelined considering the progress he’s made.
He deservedly won Man of the Match against Manchester City and, at times, has been the Gunners’ only bright spark.
Meanwhile, Laurent Koscielny is ’60/40′ to feature in the North London Derby – “60 that he plays”.
The centreback is one of Arsenal’s key players and when fans saw him go down after landing awkwardly on his knee against the Foxes midweek, they collectively held their breaths.
Kos played on, which was encouraging, and according to Wenger, he’s more likely to play against Spurs than not.
