Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger
, has revealed Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be out for at least two weeks with knee ligament damage.
Mkhitaryan was injured in Thursday’s 4-1 Europa League quarterfinal first-leg win over CSKA Moscow and a scan on Friday confirmed fears he will face a spell on the sidelines.
“Mkhitaryan has medial knee ligament damage,” Wenger said after Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton.
“He will miss these games for sure. He could still play at the end of the season.”
This means the Armenia midfielder will miss Arsenal’s next three matches against CSKA on Thursday, Newcastle on Sunday and West Ham the following weekend.
