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.

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.

The midfielder will be ready for the game on Saturday.
