Arsene Wenger gave a concerning update on Laurent Koscielny’s knee following Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Leicester on Wednesday night.
- Kos landed badly on knee against Leicester
- Played on after treatment
- Wenger unsure of damage
- Arsenal face Spurs on Sunday
Koscielny landed awkwardly on his knee during the Gunners’ win at the Emirates. It buckled and looked painful but, Kos being Kos, the centre-back played on until the final whistle.
After the match, Wenger was asked how Kos’ knee was doing, and the manager claimed he didn’t know how serious it could be yet, saying, “Koscielny has a knee problem but I don’t know how long he’ll be out for. I have to check because I don’t know yet.”
It’s worrying news since Arsenal visit White Hart Lane on Sunday to face a strong Spurs.
While the Gunners are winning matches, they’re not that convincing, and a disciplined team like Mauricio Pochettino’s side could really hurt them, especially without a key player like Kos on the pitch.
Hopefully, the fact that the France international was able to play on against Leicester means that it’s not too serious and a bit of rest should sort it. However, given Arsenal’s season, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
