Shkodran Mustafi out for 4-6 weeks

Shkodran Mustafi out for 4-6 weeks

Mustafi is out; Koscielny is a doubt, but Welbeck and Özil should be back. Shkodran Mustafi will be out for four to six weeks following the injury he sustained playing for Germany during the international week. With Laurent Koscielny suffering from his chronic Achilles issue and Sead Kolasinac needing a check on a hip problem, Arsenal could be poached at the back.

Match Report: Arsenal 2 - West Bromwich Albion 0

Lacazette’s brace secures the points for the Gunners. It was job done at the Emirates this evening as Arsenal saw off West Bromwich Albion 2-0. This was a match the Gunners were expected to win, and they did. There’s not much more to take from it than that.
