INJURY NEWS: Three Arsenal Stars Ruled Out.


Arsenal will put behind the memories of the Dinamo Zagreb experience as they will be playing their second group stage game of the Champions League against Olympiacos.

The Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat away in Croatia two weeks ago, playing a greater part of the match with only ten men after Olivier Giroud was shown red.

Tuesday night is another opportunity for them to get back to winning ways in the UCL and ahead of the game, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has revealed the current state of his squad. There are a few injuries to players.

It was earlier feared that Francis Coquelin will be out for some months but as it stands, the Frenchman has shaken off his problem and resumed training. Arsene Wenger says he looks okay for today's game. He will still have to be assessed though, so his appearance is still in doubt.

As for Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini, no clear results have been arrived at yet. We will get to know their conditions by the time they might have undergone scans to ascertain how serious their muscular problems are.

According to Wenger, the fitness problems of Arteta and Flamini are minor ones. He expects them to be healed in the next few days. Olivier Giroud will miss out through suspension while Gabriel Paulista will make a return after being absent as a result of a one-match ban which he got from the English Football Association after the Chelsea game.

Any other? 'No!' That's all on injuries from the boss for now. Since Arteta and Flamini will most likely miss the game, how do you want the Arsenal lineup to look? Who will serve as appropriate replacements for the duo?
