Following the news that Santi Cazorla will miss the remaining three months of this season, another Arsenal star has been hit with a new injury blow.

The Gunners have been troubled by injuries throughout this season as they struggle to compete in the Premier League where leaders Chelsea are 10 points ahead.

Monday night’s visit to Sutton United in the FA Cup saw Arsene Wenger’s men face potential fitness hazard due to the artificial pitch and Danny Welbeck was withdrawn from the match-day squad just because of that.

Arsenal went on to suffer at least one casualty anyway as Mohamed Elneny was substituted following 45 minutes of action.

And according to King Fut, the 24-year-old has sustained an ankle ligament problem which will see him sidelined for a considerable period.

The report claims that Elneny has been handed the bad news after undergoing a scan and he is set to be ruled out for three to four weeks of action.

Wenger only recently welcomed back the midfielder after he spent over a month on duty with the Egyptian national team at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

The absence of Elneny means Granit Xhaka or Francis Coquelin are guaranteed to retain their place in the starting eleven for the upcoming clash with Liverpool.
