Denilson will miss Arsenal's final two fixtures of the season.
 
The midfielder missed the trip to Wigan and the home clash with Manchester City due to a groin problem and will not be fit in time to face Blackburn Rovers or Fulham, according to Arsène Wenger.
 
"Denilson is out until the end of the season," said the manager at his press conference at Emirates Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
 
"Like Vermaelen and Gallas, they will not come back for the final two games, Fabregas also."
 
The manager went on to confirm what he had already told Arsenal TV Online earlier in the day regarding the fitness of Andrey Arshavin, who has a calf injury.

"Arshavin will be a bit short for Blackburn. I think he will be fit for the final game of the season. [He has] an outside chance for Blackburn."
