Koscielny to miss three weeks
Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is expected to be out until Christmas with a groin strain he picked up at Everton on Wednesday night.
Koscielny limped off after just four minutes at Goodison Park and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said afterwards he expected the centre-back to be out for three weeks. Wenger was pleased to leave Merseyside with a point despite his side dominating the last 10 league meetings, winning eight and drawing just two.
"It was a game of big physical intensity, we had a good start and after that I felt Everton came back into it and their direct game was always a threat," he said.
"There are regrets on the goal we conceded but 1-1 is a fair result and it is a good point here.
"We needed to show great spirit to get away with a point and I am pleased with the effort they put into the game."
