Arsenal awaits news on injury to Gibbs

Gibbs Kieran

Arsenal has a new injury worry after defender Kieran Gibbs limped off with a suspected ankle problem during England’s Under-21 match at Lithuania on Tuesday.

Gibbs lasted just 21 minutes of the 0-0 draw in Vilnius and was due to have a precautionary X-ray. Arsenal said it expected an update on the unspecified injury later in the week.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been relying on Gibbs at left back with France international Gael Clichy out with a stress fracture in his lower back.

Wenger also has problems in attack with Robin van Persie out for up to six weeks after tearing ankle ligaments at the weekend, Nicklas Bendtner sidelined until mid-December after minor groin surgery, and Theo Walcott hampered by a knee ligament injury.

Arsenal is second in the English Premier League, five points behind Chelsea with a game in hand.
