Arsenal fans react to Marco Reus news on Twitter

Marco Reus

Arsenal take on Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday week but Marco Reus will be unavailable due to injury.

Arsenal fans have expressed sadness over the continued injury problems that plague Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus, as the 25-year-old Germany international will be sidelined for at least four weeks after suffering an ankle problem.

Gunners supporters have wished the Dortmund forward a speedy recovery, providing the player remains unavailable for selection for next Tuesday's Champions League battle between the two sides at the Signal Iduna Park - presumably as it would Arsenal's trip to the Bundesliga hopefuls's stadium a touch easier.

Marco Reus was on course for another successful season last year with Dortmund, having returned 90 goal-scoring opportunities, 80 successful dribbles, 13 assists and 16 goals from 110 shots in 30 appearances in the division, but injury curtailed the climax to his campaign and prohibited him from competing at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This season, Reus has already notched eight clear goal-scoring opportunities, two dribbles, one assist and one goal from four shots.

However, he will once again be back in the physio's room with an unconfirmed return date as of yet.
