Arsenal hit with setback as another defender doubtful for Tottenham clash

Arsenal could be without the services of Laurent Koscielny for the upcoming clash against Tottenham Hotspur, Daily Mail reports.

He was also unable to feature yesterday as the Gunners fell to a 5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, putting their chances of qualification under huge jeopardy.

Koscielny picked up a hip injury as Gabriel was forced to take his place for the match as he now joins teammate Hector Bellerin, who is also out with a minor groin problem, on the sidelines.

Manager Arsene Wenger has now come out to reveal that both players are doubtful heading into the weekend clash against Tottenham.

“Bellerin I don’t think will be available for Sunday and Koscielny has a small chance,” he said.

“From tonight, we have no more injuries, apart from in their heads we have no more injuries.”

Despite their dismal form in Europe, Wenger has seen his side pick up five consecutive Premier League victories as they are now joint-top of the table with Manchester City on 25 points.

Spurs already met the Gunners in the Capital One Cup back in September, but were unable to pick up a win as they fell to a 2-1 defeat.
