Shkodran Mustafi expected to miss Saturday's game v Watford with thigh injury

Shkodran Mustafi

The complexion of many teams has changed due to the national games, with high-profile injuries to the likes of Sadio Mane and Marouane Fellaini.

Low's men put on a show, storming to a 5-1 victory, but Arsenal defender Mustafi was forced off in the 36th minute with a thigh injury.

"The minor problem we have is with Sead Kolasinac".

If Arsene Wenger is looking for ways to motivate his players, though, he need look no further than the comments from the former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish, reported by Metro.

"It's always hard to predict the situation because the player I least expected to lose during the break was Mustafi", he added.

"Jack is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time", Wenger said. We will check him today.

The consequences of this were laid bare by the revelation that Mustafi would miss at least a month of action.

USA withdraws from UNESCO
Nikki Haley, the U.N. ambassador, has repeatedly criticized the United Nations for what she called its anti-Israel bias. Michael Worbs, chairman of the UNESCO Executive Board, appreciated the Vietnamese' notable jump in the second round.

Asked about Mustafi on Thursday, Wenger confirmed to the media: 'We have lost Mustafi for about four to six weeks.

Wenger gave a prognosis of four to six weeks, meaning that Mustafi could return after the next worldwide break, but the Gunners boss will be keen to ensure that Mustafi is available for the Christmas period.

As for Kolasinac, who has impressed since his free transfer from Schalke 04, the damage doesn't look almost as bad.

Arsenal could be boosted by the return of Laurent Koscielny against Watford. "He trained on his own and the signs were positive so we will test him on Friday".

Alexis Sanchez will be assessed when he returns to London Colney tomorrow following his exploits with Chile but he should be okay to keep his place in the side.

Arsenal, though, could be boosted by the return of playmaker Mesut Ozil from a knee injury and also England forward Danny Welbeck, who has now resumed full training after a groin problem sustained during the goalless draw at Chelsea on September 17.
