Arsène Wenger hopes to find out in the next few days when Cesc Fabregas will return from injury.

Since Fabregas suffered a recurrence of the hamstring problem that has troubled him for some time his manager said he will listen to medical advice before deciding when he can play again.

It has been a week since the captain limped off after 68 minutes of the Champions League defeat at Braga but Wenger concedes he is no nearer to establishing how long he will be without Fabregas.

“It is impossible to say at the moment,” said Wenger. “But it is very difficult. In the next few days we will know more.”
