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.

Koscielny (thigh) will have a late fitness test to determine his availability for Saturday's match at Burnley, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Wenger added that Koscielny had a scan Wednesday, which returned positive, but he has not been cleared to play yet. If he's forced to miss out, Gabriel will likely grab the starting spot alongside Per Mertesacker.

Koscielny came off early in the second half of Saturday's game against Liverpool with a groin injury, according to BT Sport.

Koscielny was able to leave the pitch on his own power, but it was obviously serious enough to remove him. Arsenal led 3-0 at the time.

Koscielny scored in the 27th minute of Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

Koscielny obviously is paid to keep things tidy in front of the Arsenal goal, but he's proven to be handy as an occasional offensive contributor, mostly on set pieces. Tuesday's goal came on a corner conversion, a solid strike off Mesut Ozil's delivery.

Koscielny scored Arsenal's opening goal during their 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday, while also adding two tackles, three interceptions, three clearances and 40 passes.

Koscielny continues to be the rock in the Arsenal defense, as they play significantly better when he is on the pitch with Per Mertesacker. The two will be needed at their best next weekend, as Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City.
