The gunners will be playing against Liverpool on Friday as they look to end the first half of the season in style by beating the reds.
The gunners welcomed West Ham United at the Emirates stadium last night as they looked to progress to the semi finals which they did but surprisingly the manager didn’t field a youthful team as expected.Both Olivier Giroud and Francis Coquelin limped off from the match, 12 minutes before the match ended.
The manager has given an update about the two players and says that they will certainly miss the match against Liverpool.
“I would say Coquelin has a chance for Friday night. Giroud definitely looks a hamstring and that’s of course disappointing, let’s hope it will not be too bad.” the manager told arsenal.com.( PICTURE: GETTY)
The gunners will be gravely disappointed that the duo will miss the big match on Friday even though the aren’t first team players but it is always good to have back ups especially in the attack line, so Alexandre Lacazette will surely lead the attacking line for the gunners in their match against the reds.
The manager didn’t confirm on when they will be back but they will be hoping to see them back in action because Arsenal have top matches next year which will need the full squad if they would like to start the year well because they haven’t been that impressive since the season begun in August.
