Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky is set to miss six weeks of action after suffering yet another injury, according to the Mirror.
Incredibly, the injury comes after the experienced midfielder made his first appearance of the season during yesterday's FA Cup win over Burnley.
Rosicky came on as a 71st-minute substitute against the Championship outfit but damaged a thigh muscle during his brief outing.

In fact, the Mirror claim that he will now undergo tests and scans to establish the full extent of the damage.
It's certainly a major setback for the ageing star, who may never quite get over his injury problems in north London.
Time to retire?
After yet another frustrating injury, perhaps it could be time for the 35-year-old to hang up his boots. He may well attempt to prove his fitness once again, but it's not going to be easy for him at this stage.
He's certainly not going to get the run of games required at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger's side may well have a number of injury problems, but it's unlikely that the experienced midfielder will be able to establish himself as a key man for the club once again.
Following the news, Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter; here are the best tweets:
