Football - Wilshere banned for Gunners

Arsenal will be without midfielder Jack Wilshere, who starts a two-match suspension, for Monday night's Barclays Premier League clash against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.

Centre-half Laurent Koscielny is a major doubt after suffering a gash to his knee in the 6-3 defeat at Manchester City, but German forward Lukas Podolski is available again after three months out with a hamstring injury.

Forward Yaya Sanogo (back), midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all still sidelined.
