Arsenal's Mathieu Debuchy has promised to return better than ever when he recovers from injury.
The Frenchman has been ruled out for three months after suffering an ankle injury in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
Debuchy took to Twitter to send fans a message of thanks for their support.
Thanks everyone for all your messages and your support! I will be back stronger!!— Mathieu debuchy (@MatDebuchy) September 22, 2014
A summer signing from Newcastle United, Debuchy had impressed for Arsenal at right-back since replacing Bacary Sagna.
Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin will deputise with Carl Jenkinson out on loan at West Ham.
Arsene Wenger told Arsenal.com today: "It is a blow of course, how big it will be we will only know afterwards because it will be down to how well we replace him. We bought [Calum] Chambers for that.”
