Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal are awaiting the result of scans on the ankle injury sustained by Mohamed Elneny in Sunday's 4-1 win over West Ham United.
Arsenal's medical department have ruled out any serious damage, with initial fears that he could have broken a bone in his ankle, but Wenger is pessimistic about the extent of the layoff.
"Unfortunately it doesn't look too good," he told reporters at his post-match press conference. "He has an X-ray, but I don't know how bad it is. But it doesn't look too good."
Elneny's form this season saw him rewarded with a new long-term contract last month, taking him through until the summer of 2022.
