North London giants Arsenal have been dealt a huge injury blow following the news that midfielder Mohamed Elneny will miss the next two weeks of football.
The news of his injury was confirmed by the Gunners via their official website.
According to the Gunners, the 226-year-old will miss the next two weeks after sustaining an ankle injury.
The Egyptian international star suffered the problem during the team’s 1-0 Europa League victory over Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon away from home.
Elneny played for 54 minutes before he was replaced by new signing Lucas Torreira.
The injury also kept him out of the weekend’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in a London Derby clash in the Premier League.
Mohamed Elneny is expected to miss the upcoming games against Liverpool and Bournemouth in the Premier League as well as the Europa League return leg with Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates Stadium next week.
He’s expected to return to full training after two weeks according to the North London club.
Mohamed Elneny became an Arsenal player in the summer of 2016 after former boss Arsene Wenger sanctioned a fee of around £5m for him from Swiss side FC Basel.
Since his move to North London, Elneny has failed to feature in the starting XI on a consistent basis.
