Arsene Wenger has given a very positive update on one of his injured players ahead of the Premier League clash against Burnley.

The Gunners are preparing for a trip to Turf Moor on Sunday after a run of eight games unbeaten in all competitions which has seen them score 13 goals in only their last four games.

Despite Arsenal’s impressive form, injuries are always likely to be a concern especially after Francis Coquelin limped off with what appeared to be a severe knee problem last Saturday.

However, Wenger has revealed that the Frenchman might not even miss the three weeks he was expected to be out for.

“I think Coquelin is looking much better than we expected, he had a test today but I still think he will be short for Sunday.” the Arsenal manager said

“Because his ligament was not damaged as we thought. He is keen to start again but we have to be cautious.

“We have plenty of games coming up but for us now we work in cycles of three, week by week we play three games, so we have done Chelsea, Basel and it’s now to show that we can finish well the week.”
