Arsene Wenger provides injury update on Arsenal star
Arsenal midfielder Coquelin came off with a knee injury during the Gunners' 3-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday.
It was feared he could have suffered a recurrence of the knee problem that kept him out for two months last season.
But Wenger, speaking ahead of tomorrow's game against Swiss side Basel at the Emirates (7.45pm), said the Frenchman should return to full fitness sooner than first feared.
“Coquelin is out for the game tomorrow," Wenger said.
"It should be a short-term injury.
"The scan was quite positive.”
