Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed in his post-match press conference that fullback Bacary Sagna will be out for a ‘few weeks’ after sustaining an ankle injury in his sides dismal Premier League loss to Aston Villa earlier this afternoon.
The 25-year-old was injured in the build-up towards Villa’s opener, and despite Arsenal’s protests, the Villains played on and made it 1-0 after Gael Clichy headed into his own net.
Wenger told Arsenal TV Online:
“Yes it is serious. He will be out for a few weeks; he has an injured ankle.”
It is expected that Johan Djourou or Kolo Toure will fill in for the Gunners’ next league clash against moneybags Manchester City in a weeks time.
When looked at, Arsenal’s current injury list doesn’t appear to be as bad as first seemed with only Eduardo (broken leg), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) Emmanuel Eboue (knee) and now Bacary Sagna (ankle) out injured.
