Bendtner ruled out until October

Nicklas Bendtner won’t be fit for Arsenal until October at the earliest, after the Dane revealed the length of his injury during a Q & A session at Emirates Stadium this afternoon.

The 22-year-old underwent surgery last November but the injury hampered his World Cup campaign with Denmark and he has now told fans not to expect him back in the side until mid-October.

Ahead of next Sunday’s Liverpool game, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will probably be without Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie, who played against each other in the World Cup final for Spain and Holland respectively and have only had one training session so far.

It leaves Wenger short of options in attack meaning new signing Marouane Chamakh may be asked to lead the line on his own on Merseyside if the Dutchman is not match fit in time.
