Arsenal boss gives injury update on Koscielny, Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain

Laurent Koscielny

Arsene Wenger has updated the fans ahead of the upcoming game with West Ham.

Arsenal won a hard-fought tie against QPR yesterday afternoon, goals from Alexis Sanchez and Tomas Rosicky did the job for Arsene Wenger's men in a truly excellent performance from start to finish.

Apart from, of course, one moment in particular - Olivier Giroud's mad headbutt on Nedum Onouha.

His moment of irrational moment Arsenal will be without Giroud for the game with West Ham tomorrow.

But who else will be missing?

Wenger has given a brief injury update ahead of the game and admits that while not much has changed, Laurent Koscielny and Theo Walcott might take to the field. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who pulled out of the QPR game at the last minute, is unlikely to feature:

"[Laurent] Koscielny has a chance, he will have a test tomorrow. He has a little chance. [Alex] Chamberlain has an even smaller chance.

"[Theo Walcott] was in the squad on Friday but it was difficult to bring him on when it was tight and we had to defend. He's not far away."

Of course long-term absentees Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Mikel Arteta remain out of action.
