Mikel Arteta picked up a "...slight muscular problem..." in the 5-2 win over Leicester City and will miss the visit of Olympiacos on Tuesday in the Champions League.
It is a yearly right of passage for Arsenal supporters as they watch their dubious depth at a specific position undermine a portion of their season. In this case it is the holding midfield role where none of Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta or Mathieu Flamini are completely healthy. Both Flamini and Arteta will miss out on Tuesday and Arsene Wenger has to decide whether he wants to risk Francis Coquelin who has only been back in training for two days after missing wins over Spurs in the League Cup and Leicester City in the Premier League. With Manchester United looming on Sunday and Wenger declaring the Olympiocos match a "must win" the stakes are high. Sep 29 - 12:18 PM
