Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny hasn’t sustained knee ligament damage and will return ‘within days’, the Frenchman confirmed on his official Facebook page.
The 26-year-old had to be substituted during Wednesday night’s 4-0 Champions League defeat by AC Milan in the San Siro, after taking a knock on his knee.
Fellow Gunners defender Per Mertesacker is currently sidelined nursing an ankle ligament injury, leaving the shakey-looking Johan Djourou and Sebastien Squillaci as further defensive options.
Koscielny is set to miss Saturday’s FA Cup clash against Sunderland, with Swiss international Djourou likely to replace him in the centre of Arsenal’s defence.
