Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Miss Several Weeks With Knee Injury, Arsene Wenger Says

Henrikh Mkhitaryan could miss several weeks for Arsenal after picking up a knee injury, Arsene Wenger says.

The Armenian attacker started the Gunners’ Europa League first leg clash with CSKA Moscow at the Emirates last night, but limped off on the hour mark to be replaced by Alex Iwobi.

Wenger said that Mkhitaryan would have a scan on his knee this afternoon and the Frenchman has now provided an update after that, saying the former Manchester United man could find himself on the treatment table for the next few weeks:

That’s bad news for Arsenal fans considering Mkhitaryan has been getting better and better since swapping Manchester for north London in January.

Last night’s 4-1 win over the Russians was a very good result to kick off the quarter final tie with and puts Arsenal in command ahead of next week’s second leg.

But they’re weakened without Mkhitaryan in the team and everyone at the club will be hoping he returns to action sooner than Wenger fears.
