There is bad news for English Premier League club Arsenal FC on the injury front after it was revealed a key player will be missing in action for a couple of weeks.
Ivorian forward Gervinho will miss up to four weeks with an ankle injury.
The Ivory Coast international was stretchered off during the 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. Gervinho underwent a scan on Monday 29 October 2012 and the diagnosis is that the forward will be missing for around a month with the injury.
The 25-year-old will miss some crucial games for the Gunners, including Saturday's trip to clash against Manchester United, the club's Champions League clashes against Schalke and Montpellier as well as the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
Missing several players
The news will come as cruel blow to Arsene Wenger, who is already short of forward options. The likes of Alex Oxlade Chamberlain are also missing through injury.
