Olivier Giroud picked up some sort of hamstring injury during yesterday’s win over Bournemouth, and Arsene Wenger admits it has got him worried, according to Sky Sports.

“He looked to touch his hamstring. We have to see how deep the damage is. He told me on his first movement he felt a twinge,” Wenger said.

Hopefully Giroud won’t miss any playing time. While he has mostly been a substitute this season, he is a nice fall back option to have at striker, and Lucas has yet to return to action from his injury as well.

In other injury news from the match, Wenger addressed the injury that saw Mathieu Debuchy leave in the first half.

"Debuchy thinks it is a severe one, but don't go too far yet. I have to speak to the medical people,” he said. “"We have to let it breathe. Usually he would have an MRI in a couple of days.”

With Héctor Bellerín still out, you can add right back to the list of positions Arsenal is getting dangerously thin at.
