Koscielny will be out for Sunday's fixture against Manchester United. "He has a hamstring strain, and it looks like it will be three weeks, something like that," manager Arsene Wenger said.

Koscielny's absense will put a real dent into Arsenal's already shaky collection of center backs. Gabriel will slide into his spot in the starting XI alongside Per Mertesacker, but Koscielny has been the steadiest of the bunch and his absence will be felt, particularly against stiffer competition.

Koscielny (back) returned to full training Wednesday after suffering from back stiffness while playing for France over the international break.

Koscielny has been dealing with the back stiffness for a few weeks, but he's been able to play with it. With Gabriel playing well in Per Mertesacker's absence, manager Arsene Wenger could give the Frenchman a break.

Koscielny may undergo a scan on his injured back Thursday, and it is unclear if he will train Friday, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Koscielny missed last weekend's match due to the issue, which was made worse when Per Mertesacker missed out with an illness. Koscielny is apparently closer to playing than Mertesacker, though if they both have to sit again, Gabriel and Calum Chambers could start again.
