Lukas Podolski injury confirmed: Arsenal attacker to miss three weeks

sigh - Michael Regan

The forward sustained a hamstring injury in today's match.

Arsenal did not come through today's 2-0 win and 5-0 aggregate win against Fenerbahce without some bittersweet tang to their celebrations, as Lukas Podolski will miss three weeks with a hamstring injury:

Obviously this is pretty bad news for an already-thin Arsenal attack, who are missing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a long time already. Hopefully it is just a strain and no further damage rears its ugly head as the club learn more in the next couple of days.

Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere also picked up knocks in the match, but Arsene Wenger was more upbeat about them:

We'll keep you posted as we learn more. If for some reason Wilshere and Ramsey both can't go on Sunday, well...we'll keep you posted. Sigh.
