PICTURE: Arsenal boost? Ex-Liverpool ace suffers nasty injury

Dirk Kuyt

Former Liverpool hero Dirk Kuyt suffered a nasty looking injury, could he be a doubt for Fenerbahce's Champions League qualifying clash with Arsenal?

Arsenal face Fenerbahce in a Champions League qualifier next week, and will not relish facing former Liverpool ace Dirk Kuyt who has netted four times past the Gunners before.

However his participation in the clash could suddenly be in doubt after he suffered a nasty injury in training with the Dutch national team.

Kuyt was involved in a clash of heads which saw him receive a black eye which had swollen to the point it was barely open.

He did not feature as Holland drew 1-1 with Portugal on Wednesday evening.

No update has been provided on his current status for next Wednesday, although Kuyt's reputation as a battler indicates he will do everything possible to make the game.

Check out the photo of his misfortune below...

Will the injury keep him out?
