Arsenal will be without key striker Emmanuel Adebayor for three weeks due to the ankle injury he sustained in Saturday's controversial 2-1 defeat at Stoke.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed the news, which will no doubt compound his fury at what he believed were the strong-arm tactics used against his players at the Britannia Stadium.

"Adebayor will be three weeks," Wenger said.

Adebayor sustained his injury in a heavy tackle by Potters defender Ryan Shawcross, while winger Theo Walcott (shoulder) and right-back Bacary Sagna (ankle) were also hurt during the clash.

Wenger added: "Walcott could be days or weeks. It is the shoulder he had the surgery on. We don't know about Gallas yet but Sagna will be back in the squad."
