Speaking at his Friday morning press conference ahead of the weekend clash away to Hull City, the Arsenal boss revealed that Mathieu Debuchy has had another setback and could miss the game due to a hamstring problem.

The French right-back has missed most of this season with a number of different knocks, though Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin has proven a very capable backup in that position with some fine displays.

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also absent once again, and club captain Mikel Arteta is not yet ready to return to the team despite being back in training.

Francis Coquelin has looked another impressive young player to make a first-team place his own in the absence of more senior stars, though Chamberlain’s injury will still be a blow as the 21-year-old struggles to get a run of games going.
