Arsenal will have to cope without French centre back, Laurent Koscielny when they face Manchester United on Sunday, October 4, 2015 in the English Premier League. The 30-year-old defender was replaced by Per Mertesacker in the Gunners’ 2-3 defeat to Olympiakos in the Champions League after he sustained a hamstring injury.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger during his press conference on Friday, October 2, 2015 confirmed that Koscielny will be missing in action for about three weeks. The defender will also miss France’s international friendlies against against Armenia and Denmark on October 9 and 12 respectively.

This comes as sad news to Gunners fans as Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta have also been ruled out of the Manchester United game.
