Gunners without skipper until 2015.
Arsenal have been handed more bad news regarding injuries as captain Mikel Arteta faces six weeks out of action after limping out of the victory over Borussia Dortmund with a calf problem, the Daily Mirror reports.
They join Arsenal’s growing injury list, with Jack Wilshere facing surgery and a three-month lay-off and Theo Walcott, Mathieu Debuchy, Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil and Wojciech Szczesny also out.
“Mikel Arteta doesn’t look good – it’s a calf. I think he will be out for a while.
“The injuries are difficult to take on the chin. We go into many games and we need as many as possible available. The injury situation is a problem because we have many games and we lost two players tonight.
“Arteta again has a calf problem and that looks quite serious and we lost Sanogo as well on a hamstring problem.”
