Arsenal forward Gervinho will miss up to four weeks with an ankle injury.

The Ivory Coast international was stretchered off during the 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Gervinho underwent a scan on Monday and the diagnosis is that the forward will be missing for around a month with the injury.

The 25-year-old will miss some crucial
games for the Gunners, including Saturday's trip to clash against
Manchester United, the club's Champions League clashes against Schalke
and Montpellier as well as the north London derby against Tottenham
Hotspur.

The news will come as cruel blow to Arsene Wenger, who is already short of forward options.
