Striker facing spell out
Arsenal have been hit by the news Gervinho could be facing a month on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
The Ivory Coast ace came on as a substitute against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday but only managed 10 minutes after taking a knock to his ankle.
Scans have now revealed no serious damage but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be without him for the next four weeks which will rule him out of the games against Manchester United and Tottenham along with two Champions League fixtures.
The news is a blow to Wenger, who only has Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski as recognised strikers, but he can call upon Theo Walcott to go up front if required.
