Arsenal defender Johan Djourou is expected to be out of action for around six months after undergoing knee surgery.
The Switzerland international has had an operation on his left knee and the Swiss FA have announced he will not be ready to return until March.
Djourou sustained the injury on international duty last month, ahead of the friendly against Italy.
