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.

Arsenal's injury list
Arsenal's injury list
1/5 Mikel Arteta (midfield)
Like Diaby, the Spaniard is closing in on a return but the Swansea match will come to soon. The club captain last played in November.
2/5 Mathieu Debuchy (defender)
Returned in the FA Cup semi-final win over Reading but has since been ruled out with injury and Wenger confirmed he remains 'unavailable'.
3/5 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (midfield)
Suffered a hamstring injury against Manchester United in the FA Cup and hasn't played since as it has exacerbated a groin problem. Out at least until May and facing surgery in the summer.
4/5 Aaron Ramsey (midfield)
Aaron Ramsey caught a kick on his calf during the win over Hull and was later substituted. The Welshman was rated 50/50 for the Swansea match by Wenger, but it now appears that he is a major doubt for the clash at the Emirates.
5/5 Danny Welbeck (forward)
Danny Welbeck has not played since the goalless draw with Chelsea towards the end of April after suffering a knee injury. Wenger has confirmed that the injury is 'nothing major', and that he should return to full fitness before the end of the season.
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.
