Arsene Wenger admits he may have to leave Laurent Koscielny out of the Arsenal side for Saturday's trip to West Brom, Mirror reports.

The issue with the defender is his inability to recover from the trauma of the Paris terror attacks. "He had a fantastic game against Germany. And you could see that on Tuesday night he was not himself.", pointed Wenger. "I will talk with him. It's a big game for us on Saturday, so I will talk to him to see if he is completely recovered and focused." If the French is to miss any time Gabriel would be called upon duty, yet again.

Koscielny (hip) is starting Sunday against Spurs.

Koscielny was given an 80 percent chance to play Sunday by manager Arsene Wenger on Friday, and he'll slot right into his regular starting spot alongside Per Mertesacker against a Spurs side that has not lost in Premier League play since the opening fixture.

Koscielny (hip) is a late fitness test against Tottenham on Sunday, with manager Arsene Wenger saying that he has about an 80 percent chance of playing.

The Frenchman has a two-game goal scoring streak in Premier League play, but was left out of the side during their mid-week Champions League tie with Bayern Munich. The 30-year-old is certainly in the team's first choice center back pairing when fit. However, even if he can't go, the team can use a combination of Gabriel and Per Mertesacker, which has gained experience playing together this season.

Koscielny (hip) has a small chance of playing versus Tottenham on Sunday, says hopeful manager Arsene Wenger.

The French picked up the injury in the build-up before the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich and was left on the bench in the last minute. Gabriel started next to Per Mertesaker at center back and that's what will probably happen again Sunday if Koscielny can't dress up for the derby.

Koscielny scored in the 68th minute and earned a clean sheet in Arsenal's 3-0 win against Swansea City on Sunday.

Koscielny crowded opposing goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski on a free kick, before mopping up a loose ball and scoring from close range in the penalty box. While his goal certainly could have been disallowed for a foul call, Koscielny has now scored in back-to-back matches, and he also registered his fourth clean sheet of the campaign on Saturday.

Koscielny scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Everton.

Koscielny isn't much of a goal scoreróthis was his first goal in 14 matches across all competitionsóbut was a stalwart defensively. He shut down Romelu Lukaku all match and provided stability alongside Gabriel, who may have quickly formed the first choice center-half duo for Arsenal ahead of Per Mertesacker.

Koscielny (hamstring) is facing a late fitness test for Saturday's fixture against Watford. "We have three players [Koscielny, Mikel Arteta and Mathiu Flamini] who could come back and be available again and I donít think we lost anybody from our last game," manager Arsene Wenger said.

Koscielny was a casualty of the calamitous Olympiakos fixture. His injury was expected to keep him out for three weeks, and three weeks later, he very well could play. If he cannot go, Gabriel will slot back into the starting XI, where he's looked quite comfortable alongside Per Mertesacker after some initial growing pains.

Koscielny could miss Saturday's Premier League match against Watford because of his hamstring injury, manager Arsene Wenger said Wednesday.

Koscienly will have a fitness test Thursday to help determine his status, but if he is unable to play, Gabriel will likely lineup alongside Per Mertesacker.
