Watford v Arsenal - Probable lineups - Wenger facing injury crisis in defence

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi

Shkodran Mustafi will be out for four to six weeks following the injury he sustained playing for Germany during the global week.

Speaking to the club's official website ahead of the match at Vicarage Road, Wenger has revealed he's got a selection dilemma at the heart of the defence and will make a decision on the Frenchman on Friday.

Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan.

'Overall I believe he doesn't necessarily have to leave Arsenal to reach the World Cup. This is a game that both teams will go into hoping that they can win so I am expecting a really exciting game of football.

'He has played games for us this season and he will play many more'. "We have to cope with that now".

If either of Sanchez or Koscielny are ruled out they will join an injury list that already includes Francis Coquelin, who has a hamstring strain, Callum Chambers who is suffering from a hip problem and Santi Cazorla. 'I believe Jack is in the best form I've seen for a long time.

Mustafi and Koscielny are recognised as the north London outfit's most senior defenders but have only played alongside each other four times this season.

Wenger also addressed the possibility of Arsenal's December 23 fixture against Liverpool being moved to Christmas Eve for TV purposes, saying that a late kickoff would be unacceptable on that date.
