Sidelined: Trio will miss out through injury

Olivier Giroud, Aarom Ramsey and Francis Coquelin will miss Arsenal’s match against Burnley, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Wenger will celebrate 20 years in charge of Arsenal as Burnley visit the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run to nine matches against the Clarets, but will have to do so without three key figures.

“Aaron Ramsey should be available after the international break,” said the manager, with the Welshman carrying a hamstring injury.

“Giroud will be out,” Wenger added, with the striker, who has not yet started a league game this season, sidelined with a toe injury. “He will not come back.

On midfielder Coquelin, who has a knee injury, Wenger said: “He is looking much better but he will still not be ready.

“The ligament is not as damaged as we thought but we have to be careful.”
