Sports Arsene Wenger Gives Update on Ozil's Illness, Coquelin Out for 4 Weeks



Arsenal Midfielder, Francis coquelin will be out of action for four weeks with a hamstring injury, Manager Arsene Wenger has announced.

Coquelin lasted just 26 minutes of Tuesday's pulsating 3-3 draw at Bournemouth before limping off and Wenger says he may not play again this month.

He's going to miss miss this weekend's FA Cup tie against Preston Northend, Arsene Wenger said, adding that Alexis Sanchez, Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny will be rested.

"Mesut Ozil is coming in today and will be assessed by the doctor," he added.

"He has been in bed for two weeks. I cannot imagine we will involve him on Saturday.

"It's a flu he has had, a throat infection. I don't know exactly."
