Three weeks out for Coquelin

Arsenal will be without midfielder Francis Coquelin for three weeks, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Coquelin was substituted in the 32nd minute of Arsenal's 3-0 defeat of Chelsea on Saturday after he picked up an injury in a challenge with N'Golo Kante.

There were fears that he had aggravated an injury that kept him sidelined for more than two months last season, but a scan has revealed the problem is not serious.

"Coquelin is out for the game tomorrow - it should be a short-term injury. The scan was quite positive," Wenger told reporters ahead of Arsenal's Champions League tie against Basel on Wednesday.

Coquelin will also miss the Premier League trip to Burnley on Sunday but he could be available for the visit of Swansea on October 15.
