Cesc Fabregas' season is over after it was confirmed the Arsenal captain had suffered a small crack in his right fibula during the Champions League clash against Barcelona on Wednesday night.

The Gunners captain had been a doubt for the game which ended in a dramatic 2-2 draw at Emirates Stadium, after suffering severe bruising to his knee and leg at Birmingham but passed a fitness test before kick off.

During the closing stages the Gunners skipper was bundled over by Carles Puyol and awarded a penalty. It was during that collision with the Barcelona captain, who was shown a red card by Swiss referee Massimo Busacca, that Fabregas suffered the latest problem.

However, while Fabregas will miss the rest of the domestic season, the 22-year-old should still be fit for the World Cup with Spain.

An Arsenal statement read: "Following a scan, the club can confirm that Cesc Fabregas has suffered a small crack in his right fibula as a result of the collision with Barcelona defender Carles Puyol during Wednesday evening's match.

"As a consequence, Cesc will miss the remainder of the domestic campaign as he will be out of action for at six weeks.

"Everyone at the club wishes Cesc a full and speedy recovery."
