Laurent Koscielny is a major doubt for the game on Wednesday evening due to an ongoing Achilles problem which has flared up again.
The Gunners take on Chelsea at the Emirates with a mounting injury list. Seven players have joined long-term casualty – Santi Cazorla - in the treatment room since the beginning of December, while four players have been added during the festive programme. Koscielny is the latest addition, having limped off at West Brom and Arsène Wenger admitted the early signs are not too encouraging. "He is 30 per cent available, 70 per cent not." Per Mertesacker is the player most likely to step into the breach. It was initially hoped that Nacho Monreal would be back within a fortnight after picking up a knock against Liverpool, but all told, that timeline could be nearer to a month. Sead Kolasinac will miss the next two games [at least]. "It could settle in a week, or two. It is not long term." Aaron Ramsey is targeting his comeback in the Carabao Cup on January 10.
