Arsenal

Injury concern for Gunners

7th November 2017, 14:52 by Nick Harris

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is waiting for news of Olivier Giroud, who may have picked up an injury on international duty.

Giroud apparently picked up a problem training with France during an afternoon session in Clairfontaine on Monday and was spotted clutching his leg.

All eyes will now be on whether Giroud, who has played a key role for the national side helping them to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russia, turns out for France in a friendly against Wales on Friday.

Arsenal's hopes of mounting a serious title challenge took a knock with defeat against Manchester City on Sunday, and Wenger will be anxious to have all his players available for the clash with arch rivals Tottenham when the Premier League resumes in two weeks.
