And Arteta has since provided an update on his situation.

He said: “It is a worry, he came to me straight away and said he couldn’t continue.

“He’d felt something when he was tracking back, so we had to take him off.


“We’ll assess him and see how he is.”

Trossard has made an instant impact since arriving at the Emirates in January.

Despite initially coming off the bench, Trossard has since played his way into the starting XI.

The former Brighton forward has scored once and added two assists.


His injury will come as a blow to Arsenal’s title hopes with a number of injuries already impeding the Gunners’ firepower.

Gabriel Jesus has handed Arsenal an injury boost with his expected return before the international break after being sidelined at the World Cup.

However, deputy Eddie Nketiah missed training ahead of the Bournemouth game and was consequently left out the squad.

However, it was the day of super subs for Arsenal as Reiss Nelson crashed home a last-gasp winner after half-time sub Ben White fired in the equaliser.
