Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Laurent Koscielny, Hector Bellerin and Mikel Arteta


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that defender Hector Bellerin will not feature against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

The youngster was absent in Arsenal's 5-1 thrashing by Bayern Munich in mid-week and is again ruled out with Mathieu Debuchy expected to keep his place in the starting line-up.

Defender Laurent Koscielny will have a late fitness test on Sunday ahead of the North London derby.

"From the unfortunate Wednesday night, we have no injuries," Wenger revealed.

"Players back for Sunday, we might have [Laurent] Koscielny and I think that it is. [His chances are] eighty per cent. He will have a test tomorrow.

"[Mikel] Arteta has a test tomorrow morning. [Hector] Bellerin is a doubt already.

"Mathieu [Debuchy] needed a little competition. Game after game he has basic fitness and now with another game he should be better. Bellerin unfortunately will not be ready, I think he could be back after the break."
