Arsenal DM could be out for up to three months


Arsenal defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin is almost certain to be out injured for three months according to L’Equipe journalist Bruno Constant.

The 24-year-old Gunner midfielder suffered a knee injury during the 2-1 loss against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday, when both he and Baggies midfielder Claudio Yacob both went for a 50:50 ball.

Many Arsenal fans had a go at manager Arsene Wenger for not buying a back-up DM over the summer when players such as Morgan Schneiderlin were available, and now it could back to haunt him just when Arsenal appeared to be in with a shot of winning the Premier League title
