Arsenal's Gervinho out for 3 weeks with injury


LONDON (AP) -Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Ivory Coast winger Gervinho will be out for three weeks with a left ankle injury.

Gervinho was carried off on a stretcher during Arsenal's win against Queen Park Rangers last weekend after falling awkwardly. He will miss Premier League games against Manchester United and Tottenham, as well as Tuesday's Champions League match away to Schalke.

Arsenal was already without midfielder Abou Diaby and goalkeeper Wojciech Sczcesny but didn't pick up any new injuries in the 7-5 win over Reading in the League Cup on Tuesday. Looking ahead to Sunday's trip to Manchester United, Wenger said "basically the squad should be approximately the squad we had last week."
