Concussion concerns means Flamini misses Arsenal’s Champions League clash

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed Mathieu Flamini is absent for the Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Flamini suffered a concussion in Saturday's 4-1 Premier League win over Norwich, and although the Group F clash is vital in their potential progress to the last 16, he will not be risked.

Wenger said: "Flamini is doing well, has practiced normally, but we will not play him tomorrow.

"There is a five-days (concussion) rule that we will respect, not to take any chance. It was a concussion and the doctor advised us not to play him. He will be okay for the weekend.

"I'll leave myself 24 hours until tomorrow afternoon to decide the team."
