Arsenal dealt double blow as Arteta and Debuchy ruled out for three months

first_img Mikel Arteta 1 Arsenal have announced midfielder Mikel Arteta and defender Mathieu Debuchy will both be sidelined for three months.Artete has not played for the club since the end of November having been troubled by a calf injury and then a related ankle issue.He has now gone under the knife and will not return for Arsene Wenger’s side until April at the earliest.Speaking to Arsenal.com on Thursday, Wenger said: “Mikel has had surgery which went well. I have just seen him, he is back with us at the training ground.“He had a limited mobility in his ankle and some persistent inflammation that had an impact on his calf. That meant we had to make the decision to have surgery and it’s a proper solution which gives him the best chance to recover.”Debuchy, meanwhile, has also undergone surgery after dislocating a shoulder in the victory over Stoke at the weekend.The full-back had only recently returned to action after missing three months with an ankle injury and is now set to be out for a similar period of time.“Mathieu had a surgery on his right shoulder following the injury on Sunday,” said Wenger.“It’s very unfortunate for Mathieu, it’s unbelievable because he’s had two surgeries in the same season. He just came back, he played seven games and he’s out again.“I count three months out for Mathieu because contact will be a problem for the shoulder.”last_img read more
