Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs will miss the next three weeks with a thigh injury, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The left-back limped out of Wednesday night's 2-2 draw with Liverpool suffering from the problem and was replaced by Andre Santos.

"He has a thigh strain that rules him out for the next three weeks. It's a blow for us of course," Wenger said. "He was an important player for us going forward and the game we wanted to play. It's a shame he's out for the next three weeks."
