Arsène Wenger is hoping for positive news when the extent of Kieran Gibbs' foot injury is confirmed on Wednesday.

The England left back was superb during Arsenal's 4-1 win at Tottenham on Tuesday night but he limped off after 12 minutes of extra time at White Hart Lane.

Gibbs spent the last six months of last season on the sidelines after needing two operations on a broken metatarsal and Wenger fears he may have suffered a similar injury.

"We have to check," said the manager.

"That is the only disappointment of the night because he had a very good game and we hope we do not get bad news tomorrow morning.

"It is a metatarsal again but the one next to the one he had broken. The second metatarsal. That would be a massive blow to us."
