The England international midfielder picked up an ankle problem in the early minutes of the second half of the Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday.

The 22-year-old played on for the next few minutes but was eventually substituted in the 55th minute, as the Gunners went on to lose the encounter 2-1.

Another Arsenal player who picked up an injury at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday was goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who collided with defender Kieran Gibbs in the build-up to United’s opening goal.

Wenger has assured the Gunners fans that the Poland international’s injury is not serious, despite him having to be replaced rightaway.
