Oleksandr Zinchenko’s injury in training has delivered Arsenal a severe setback ahead of their English Premier League matchup with Brentford on Sunday.
Zinchenko is anticipated to miss at least two weeks of the premier league.
Zinchenko’s knee ailment has kept him out of games against Fulham and Aston Villa ever since his summer transfer to the Emirates.
However, he came off the bench in their Europa League match against FC Zurich last week and returned to the Arsenal starting lineup earlier this month in a 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
Zinchenko is now unable to be selected for Ukraine’s forthcoming international matches due to a fresh injury, this time to his calf.
“Oleksandr Zinchenko will not be able to help the blue and yellow during the September matches in the UEFA Nations League.
“The Arsenal player suffered a calf muscle injury during training at the club which will require two weeks for treatment and recovery,” confirmed the Ukrainian FA on Friday
