Arsene Wenger revealed Nacho Monreal missed the north London derby due to a minor calf strain.
The Spanish full-back was a surprise omission from the starting XI on Saturday as Kieran Gibbs came in for only his third league start of the campaign and first of 2016. Post-match Wenger confirmed Monreal was carrying an injury and he was rested as a precaution: "We have some knocks like Nacho who is not 100% so you try to freshen up. He has a slight calf problem." Gibbs is likely to start successive games as Arsenal travel to Hull in the FA Cup on Tuesday night. However, the 30-year-old should be back in training by Thursday. The Gunners will also be without Laurent Koscielny for the fifth round replay: "He has a chance to be available for the weekend, but I think even for then he will be short." Meanwhile, David Ospina is expected to be the first choice goalkeeper for the next month: "Petr’s scans were better than expected, but it will still be four weeks for him." Mar 7 - 3:36 PM
