Arsenal have been hit with the news of another injury blow following the 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

The Gunners dropped further behind in the race to finish in the top four as Tony Pulis’ side won the clash at the Hawthorns 3-1.

And with Alexis Sanchez preparing for a spell on sidelines, it now appears that he will be joined by another Arsenal forward.

According to Goal.com, Lucas Perez will miss the next three weeks of action due to a new thigh injury he has suffered.

The 28-year-old was excluded from the squad which faced West Brom this weekend, as Danny Welbeck was handed another start upfront.

Perez’s injury lay-off is likely to see him miss clashes against Manchester City and West Ham after the international break.
