Arsène Wenger expects to find out on Tuesday the severity of the hamstring injury suffered by Cesc Fabregas at Sunderland.

The captain put his side ahead in the opening stages at the Stadium of Light before hobbling off on the half-hour.

Speaking to TV Online on Monday afternoon, Wenger simply did not have enough information for conjecture.

“We don’t know yet [about Cesc],” he said. “It is difficult to say. He has a hamstring problem but I can’t tell how long he will be out for.

“Any speculation would be wrong today because we have not had the scan.”
