Injury to Arsenal’s midfield shield Francis Coquelin has left boss Arsene Wenger feeling ‘disappointed’ after the 24-year-old was ruled out of action for at least eight weeks with a knee injury.

Coquelin picked up the injury during Saturday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat at West Bromwich Albion.

“It is of course a disappointment to lose him in the longer term but we have in the squad the players who can compensate. We have lost a player of quality for a while but we know that can happen,” Wenger said.
