Arsenal forward Gervinho will miss up to four weeks with an ankle 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
The news will come as cruel blow to Arsene Wenger, who is already short of forward options.
