Arsenal handed multiple injury boosts

Arsenal are in a nice run of form following their opening day defeat to Liverpool.

The Gunners have remained unbeaten in all competitions following their 4-3 defeat to the Reds at Emirates Stadium, and on Saturday, registered their most impressive result of the season by defeating Chelsea 3-0.

The North London club looked a far better side than their London neighbours in the derby, but their win was dampened by a knee injury to midfielder Francis Coquelin.

The Frenchman suffered a knee injury in the first half of the game and was originally expected to miss two months of action. However, according to French publication L’Equipe, Coquelin’s injury is not as bad as initially feared, and he could make a comeback within three weeks.

This means that he could be fit in time for the game against Swansea City following the international break.

In another positive update, right-back Carl Jenkinson has joined first-team training following a long-term cruciate injury.

The 24-year-old, who had suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury while playing for West Ham in January, announced the latest news on his official Twitter account.
