North London side Arsenal have provided an update on the hamstring injury sustained by veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech at the weekend.
His injury update was confirmed by the club via a statement released earlier on Tuesday.
According to the statement, the retired Czech Republic international will be ruled out for at least three weeks.
The former Chelsea shot-stopper got injured while trying to take a goal kick shortly before the halftime of the weekend’s game against Watford.
He was subsequently replaced by new signing Bernd Leno and the former Bayer Leverkusen impressed a great deal to help the Gunners to a 2-0 victory over the Hornets.
Arsenal scored two late goals through Craig Cathcart (own goal) and Mesut Ozil as the former FA Cup winners recorded a fifth consecutive victory in the Premier League.
The Watford victory, which lifted Arsenal to the fifth position on the league table, is the club’s seventh straight win in all competitions and the goalkeeping duo of Petr Cech and Bernd Leno have contributed immensely to the recent run.
Leno is expected to deputise for the injured Cech for Thursday’s Europa League Matchday 2 clash as well as the London Derby clash with Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.
