Arsenal's defensive injury crisis continues to grow with the news that already sidelined full-back Kieran Gibbs will be out for a further month following groin surgery.
Gibbs hasn't featured for The Gunners since October, following a hernia operation.
This latest setback in his recovery compounds Arsenal's current injury problems, which has seen Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny recently played at full-back.
“Kieran Gibbs has had surgery on his left groin and he will be out for a month, Arsene weenier said.”
Gibbs adds to a growing Gunners injury list which includes Bacary Sagna, Carl Jenkinson, Andre Santos and Johan Djourou.
