William Saliba has suffered a second injury setback of the season after it was confirmed he has fractured a metatarsal in his foot.
The 18-year-old, who signed for the Gunners for £27 million in the summer before returning to Saint Etienne on a season-long loan, has been in fine form since his return from injury helping Les Verts to four clean sheets in five games in Ligue.

He had missed the opening seven games of the campaign after undergoing surgery to fix an adductor problem even returning to London Colney to undertake some of his rehabilitation.
Saint Etienne, now coached by Claude Puel, have confirmed that Saliba will miss tonight’s Europa League game with FC Oleksandriya in Ukraine and could be facing a spell on the sidelines, possibly as long as four weeks.
We’ll update you when we hear more. In the meantime, best wishes to French Willy.
