Arsenal's Touré to miss Milan trip

Arsenal FC could be without Kolo Touré for a month after the Ivory Coast international damaged a calf muscle early in the first-leg stalemate against AC Milan.

Arsenal FC could be without Kolo Touré for a month after the Ivory Coast international damaged a calf muscle in the UEFA Champions League first knockout round first leg against holders AC Milan.

Three to four weeks
The 26-year-old central defender lasted only seven minutes of the goalless draw at the Arsenal Stadium before being replaced by Philippe Senderos, with Arsène Wenger later explaining the extent of the injury. "Touré has a calf problem and will be out for three to four weeks at least," said the Arsenal manager, who also had to substitute Emmanuel Eboué with Theo Walcott late on. The second leg is at San Siro on 4 March.
