Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi will be out of action until next month due to a hamstring injury.

Germany's Mustafi suffered a thigh muscle injury in the 5-1 World Cup qualifying victory over Azerbaijan on Sunday when he was taken off in the 37th minute after grabbing his right thigh in pain with no opponents near him.

"We lost Mustafi for four to six weeks, I don't think he will be available before the next worldwide break", Wenger told reporters at the pre-game press conference.

Koscielny, on the other hand, skipped the recent worldwide break to recover from an Achilles injury that has been a long-standing issue for the France defender.

"I will decide what I have to do when Koscielny has his test tomorrow. It looks like if he survives the test he is capable to play".

Arsene Wenger admits Gunners ARE considering selling Mesut Ozil in January
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger today admitted that the club may sell Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window. Personally, I would prefer to be at home on Christmas Eve and celebrate but that could still happen if we play early on the day.


Sead Kolasniac, who has impressed so far this season at left-back, has come back from worldwide duty with a minor hip problem too, which is being assessed today. "We have to cope with that now".

The injury adds to Arsène Wenger's problems, with Laurent Koscielny suffering from an achilles problem and Calum Chambers nursing a groin injury.

Koscielny has been managing the problem for several seasons and, although he had not joined in full training at the start of the week, the intention is for him to resume with the squad ahead of Saturday. At the moment, he's not available. Sanchez won't be back with us until tomorrow.

Wenger, meanwhile, will make a late decision on the make up of his front three for the game against Marco Silva's men. "He trained on his own and the signs were positive so we will test him on Friday".
