Scans reveal no serious injury for Arsenal defender Mustafi

Scans have confirmed Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has not suffered a serious ankle injury.

Mustafi was stretchered off in Monday's win over Bournemouth, with manager Mikel Arteta unsure of his status when speaking after the game.

But tests have revealed Mustafi has suffered no serious damage to his ankle.

An injury to the German would have left Arteta with only three centre-backs, following Calum Chambers serious knee injury.
