Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is not too concerned about Abou Diaby’s latest injury.

The midfielder sustained a muscle injury in his leg during France’s World Cup qualifying win over Finland on Friday but Wenger feels he could still play against Southampton on Saturday.

"[The injury] doesn't seem serious to me at all. He has a small chance of playing on Saturday,” the Gunners boss told TFI.

Diaby has returned to the Arsenal line-up with some impressive performances in the early stages of this season after spending plenty of time on the sidelines with various injury problems during the last couple of years.
