Debuchy could be out for three months due to injury

BY NATALI IVERSON - SEPTEMBER 19, 2014

Arsenal new signing, Mathieu Debuchy  will miss approximately six weeks of football, after he injured his ankle during the game against Manchester City last weekend.

His injury may require surgery, according to the BBC, which could see him miss up to three months of action.

"He has an exploration of his ankle on Friday night. They go in and look how the ligament is damaged," Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, said.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Calum Chambers will be replacing Debuchy at right back until further notice.

After being stuck on the bench for the Gunners midweek Champions League match against Dortmund due to tonsillitis, he will be in the starting line-up for the game against Villa.

But there is good news for Arsenal, Jack Wilshere will be returning from an ankle injury, which he sustained during the match against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

The midfielder will be ready for the game on Saturday.

Aston Villa will be hosting Arsenal at the Villa Park Stadium on Saturday the 20th of September.
