Arsenal facing a defensive crisis as a challenging week awaits

Arsenal facing a defensive crisis as a challenging week awaits

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has been ruled out of action for up to six weeks after sustaining a thigh injury on global duty.

The German worldwide limped off with a hamstring problem during their World Cup qualifier win over Azerbaijan.

Whenever the German is available again, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has something of a defensive selection poser for the trip to Hertfordshire should he look to continue with a three-man backline.

"I am thinking about sorting out the [defensive] problem, but overall I will completely decide what I do tomorrow", Wenger said. Secondly, Germany had already qualified so I didn't expect him to be out injured as the games would be less intense.

Wenger explained: "Koscielny has a definite final test tomorrow".

Arsenal could be without seven first-team players for their clash against Watford on Saturday (14 October), which could derail their current unbeaten run in the Premier League. At the moment he is not available.

Midfield: Sead Kolasinac is a minor doubt with a hip injury but the Bosnian global is expected to be available while Hector Bellerin should keep his place on the opposite flank. "I am more concerned that yesterday afternoon I watched the whole game Brazil against Chile to see how hard the game was and I must say he got some special treatment in this game. But he trained on his own and the first signs are positive, so we made a decision to give him a test tomorrow", he added.

"It was a very physical game".

Chambers has only played one game this season, in the EFL Cup against Doncaster, but has just been given a new deal by Wenger. Sanchez won't be back with us until tomorrow. Fringe players such as Mathieu Debuchy might be called on as Wenger will look to scrape through this coming week with the hope of no more repercussions.
