Arsenal have revealed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be out for at least six weeks because of an injury to his right foot.

Mkhitaryan suffered a fractured metatarsal in last Wednesday's 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Tottenham and was replaced at half-time.

Arsenal have now revealed the extent of the injury with the Armenian playmaker not due to resume full training for six weeks.

Mkhitaryan has been a regular under Unai Emery and has contributed four Premier League goals this season.

The 29-year-old will miss league games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City as Arsenal look to seal a place in the top four.

Mkhitaryan arrived at the Emirates Stadium almost a year ago as part of the swap deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.
