Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed Danny Welbeck will remain sidelined with a thigh injury for a further two weeks.

The striker hasn't played for the Gunners since the Premier League victory against West Ham at the end of December.

Midfielder Mikel Arteta has been ruled out for three moths with an ankle problem, while defender Mathieu Debuchy is facing a similar spell on the sidelines with a dislocated shoulder.
