Star facing spell out
Arsenal have been rocked by the news defender Thomas Vermaelen is facing three weeks on the sidelines with a calf injury.
The Belgium international picked up the injury during Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat at Tottenham and boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is facing up to three weeks on the sidelines.
It gives Wenger another huge headache as the injuries start to stack up at the Emirates Stadium and the Frenchman is running out of options at the back with William Gallas also on the sidelines.
"Certainly it is a calf strain. (He will be out for) two to three weeks," Wenger confirmed.
