LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs has been ruled out for three weeks after suffering a thigh strain in his side's 2-2 draw against Liverpool on Wednesday.

Gibbs was forced off in the 37th minute at the Emirates Stadium and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger doesn't expect to see the left-back in action again until late February.

"He has a thigh strain that rules him out for the next three weeks. It's a blow for us of course," Wenger said.

"He was an important player for us going forward and the game we wanted to play. It's a shame he's out for the next three weeks." Gibbs will miss Saturday's meeting with Stoke and a further Premier League clash against Sunderland, while he could also be a doubt for the Champions League last 16 first leg against Bayern Munich.
