Mathieu Debuchy came in from the cold to line up against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday but the French full-backs return was cruelly cut short by injury.
The former Newcastle United defender was making his first Premier League start for Arsenal in over a year, however, his day was practically over before it had even begun after suffering a muscular strain. In the absence of Nacho Monreal [ankle], Debuchy returned to the starting XI with Carl Jenkinson paying the price for his indifferent form since recovering from a serious knee injury. But Debuchy lasted barely 15 minutes after he pulled up with a hamstring problem and the early signs do not look good: "He thinks it’s a severe one," mused the Arsenal boss although the full extent of his injury won’t be known until he has an MRI scan. The Gunners will also check on Olivier Giroud who finished the game on the Emirates turf after feeling "a twitch in the back of his hamstring." Arsenal are "hoping" the damage is not too bad.
