Jack Wilshere will miss this weekend's Premier League fixture against Burnley with a "short-term" knee injury, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed. The England midfielder joins Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny on the sidelines.

Ozil will be out until January at the earliest after suffering a knee ligament injury. The defender Koscielny remains out injured with an Achilles problem, and is expected to be out for the match against the newly-promoted side.

Goalkeeper David Ospina is out with a hip injury until January, and Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud, who are both set to return next month.

Kieran Gibbs is a doubt with a hip problem he picked up against Sunderland last weekend.

Theo Walcott, who has been out for nine months after suffering a knee injury against Tottenham in an FA Cup tie, is also doubt for the game. Manager Arsene Wenger says he plans to bring the forward "slowly" back into the team in the next three weeks.
