Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that Lukasz Fabianski will need specialist treatment on a new injury problem after rupturing ankle ligaments in training.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Lukasz Fabianski has suffered a new injury problem which requires specialist treatment.

Fabianski has yet to play this season after suffering a shoulder injury during pre-season.

The Polish goalkeeper was close to making a return to full training but has ruptured ankle ligaments, ruling him out for the rest of 2012.

Wenger told the club's official website: "Fabianski sees a specialist today (Thursday).

"I don't know what will come out of that. It's an ankle ligament problem, a new problem. He was back in training before that."

Wenger also revealed that first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny is still two weeks away from making his return, meaning Italian understudy Vito Mannone will continue to deputise for the Gunners.
