Arsenal have confirmed that Mohamed Elneny has suffered ligament damage to his ankle after he went off injured in the 4-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.
The Egyptian international landed awkwardly towards the end of the first period, and after some lengthy treatment left the field on a stretcher.
In a statement on the official website, Arsenal said, “Further to assessments and scans on Sunday and Monday, we can confirm that Mo Elneny has sustained ligament damage to his left ankle.
“We are hoping that Mo will available for Arsenal again this season and we are keeping in regular contact with the Egyptian Football Association.
“The midfielder was injured just before half-time during Sunday’s 4-1 home victory over West Ham United.
“Further updates will be made in due course.”
It seems unlikely that he’ll be fit again for us this season, but we can keep fingers crossed, and also that he makes it back in time for the World Cup this summer.
Good luck to him.
