Abou Diaby is set to be out for “some weeks” after picking up a calf strain in the 2-2 draw at Wigan on Wednesday night.

The midfielder hobbled off during the first half at the DW Stadium and was replaced by Jack Wilshere.

Afterwards, Arsène Wenger confirmed the bad news. “It is a calf strain,” said the manager. “He is out for a while now. Some weeks I think”.
