Coquelin said: “Obviously when you know you make this kind of tackle, and it had happened against West Brom last year. I was a bit scared because it was a similar tackle.
“But I could run back on to the pitch, albeit not for long. The scan was good news. It took me a couple of weeks to come back to full fitness, but I feel good.”
Coquelin now finds himself competing with new signing Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny for the role of holding midfielder this season.
