Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he will take a late decision today over the fitness level of defender Laurent Koscielny and striker Theo Walcott.

The Gunners will be without Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla for weeks after injuries suffered last week at Norwich City although the Frenchman says it is too early to understand for how long the two will be out of action.

"We will make a decision on Saturday on [Laurent] Koscielny and [Theo] Walcott, they could both make the squad. [Kieran] Gibbs is available again for the weekend," Wenger explained.

"At the moment on Alexis [Sanchez], Santi [Cazorla] and Mikel [Arteta] , we don't know how long they will be out for.

"I don't know, honestly. Alexis is a hamstring [injury] but I don't know how long it will take, it is usually a quick one to recover. Cazorla we don't know until he sees a specialist. There is no news on that.

"It is possible [that Cazorla returns in March], yes."
