Wenger would follow medical advice if keeper Szczesny suffered head injury

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insisted would withdraw Wojciech Szczesny had he suffered concussion at Manchester United. Concerns were raised about Szczesny when he required lengthy treatment after a clash of heads with United's Phil Jones in the first half of the 1-0 Premier League loss at Old Trafford.

Wenger said: "I listen to the doctor. If he says to me he has to come off, he comes off.

"No matter if we have seven men on the field, I do it.

"You have only one life and you have 60 games per year."

When asked if the doctor had told him Szczesny was fit, Wenger, speaking in his post-match press conference, said: "No, nobody told me anything about him.

"If he said there was a problem I would have taken him off."
