Cazorla out for Arsenal with ankle complaint

Arsenal FC will be without Santi Cazorla until mid-October due to an ankle injury, meaning the Spain midfielder will miss the club's first two games in UEFA Champions League Group F.

Arsenal FC will have to cope without Santi Cazorla until mid-October as the Spain midfielder has been laid low by an ankle injury.

The 28-year-old missed Arsenal's 3-1 Premier League win at Sunderland AFC on Saturday and will now sit out the north London club's UEFA Champions League Group F opener at Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday, as well as their matchday two home meeting with SSC Napoli on 1 October.

"Cazorla has an ankle problem and he will be out for a few weeks," said manager Arsène Wenger. "I don't think he will play before the next international break."

The Gunners contest their first game after the international break at home to Norwich City FC in the Premier League on 19 October, before hosting Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League three days later.
