Arsenal Hit With Double Injury Blow

Arsenal have recorded another disaster after losing to Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night

The Gunners took an early lead, courtesy Joel Campbell's effort, but could not contain the pressure from the visitors who later scored twice to claim all three points. That result is a big blow to their title aspirations.

As if that wasn't enough, Arsenal went on to record a major injury ahead of their North-London derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Petr Cech has been ruled out of the visit to White Hart Lane.

The Czech international sustained the injury as he went up for a corner towards the end of the Swansea game and according to Arsene Wenger he will be replaced in goal by David Ospina in their next clash.

Wenger said: "Petr Cech is injured. I think it will keep him out of the game against Tottenham at the weekend. But I have full-confidence in David Ospina."

This means that the Gunners will likely be without Laurent Koscielny and Petr Czech for that crucial encounter. Koscielny missed Wednesday's clash as a result of a calf injury he is currently nursing.
