Arsenal injury update: Four Gunners still months away from returns

Arsenal full-back Sead Kolasinac, who suffered a knee injury in preseason against Chelsea, is aiming for a return in October. Kolasinac featured 27 times last season scoring two Premier League goals for the club.

The medical team also gave an Arsenal injury update on Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Carl Jenkins, and Laurent Koscielny. All three will be out until November with their respective injuries.

Maitland-Niles sustained a small break to his fibula, while Jenkins suffered an ankle sprain. Koscielny, who was made club captain after Per Mertesacker’s retirement, is still recovering from an Achilles tendon injury. Koscielny sustained the injury during Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid last spring.

Arsenal started the season with two very difficult fixtures under Emery. The Gunners opened the manager’s reign against Manchester City before playing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Arsenal will host West Ham this weekend. The Hammers have lost their two opening fixtures under the reign of Manuel Pellegrini. The Hammers are second bottom in the Premier League due to a -5 goal difference.

The Gunners will follow up their match against West Ham with a trip to Cardiff. The Bluebirds are also winless going into this weekend’s fixture.
