Van Persie injury set back for Gunners
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed both Robin van Persie and Johan Djourou could be set for an extended spell on the sidelines.
Dutchman van Persie, 24, has endured an injury-plagued season, suffering a knee problem earlier in the campaign, managing only 14 appearances, but netting seven goals, and had suffered a further thigh injury.
'Robin van Persie who is out for a few weeks,' Arsene Wenger confirmed to Arsenal TV Online.
'Johan Djourou is out as well. He has had an inflammation of his groin and in the next two weeks he will not be capable to play.'
