Wenger facing major injury headache ahead of Watford clash
Окт 12 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Low's men put on a show, storming to a 5-1 victory, but Arsenal defender Mustafi was forced off in the 36th minute with a thigh injury.
The 25-year-old Germany global limped off with a first-half injury as the World Cup holders completed a 100% record in qualifying for Russian Federation 2018 by thrashing Azerbaijan 5-1 on Sunday.
"We lost Mustafi for about four to six weeks".
Nacho Monreal is expected to be available, but Laurent Koscielny has been nursing a troublesome Achilles which flared up before the worldwide break, while Calum Chambers is recovering from a groin problem.
"Koscielny will have a test tomorrow", Wenger added.
"The minor problem we have is with Sead Kolasinac". "At the moment he is not available".
The Gunners will keep a close eye on forward Alexis Sanchez as he has had a long trek back to London following Chile's final World Cup qualifier against Brazil, which saw them lose 3-0 in Sao Paulo and miss out on a place in Russian Federation next summer as a result.
"He trained on his own and the signs were positive so we will test him on Friday".
Chelsea and Arsenal both have very winnable away games in the Premier League, while Fulham will fancy their chances against PNE, so 7/2 (4.50) with dabblebet on the enhanced treble, boosted from 3/1 (4.0), could well prove to be a gift for punters.
Wenger said contract talks with German global Ozil, who is in the final year of his deal, were progressing well. The player looks happy.
With Calum Chambers also sidelined through injury it could mean Arsenal go into the Watford match without four senior defenders. Arsenal are fifth on 13 points from seven games.
