Olivier Giroud has been ruled out of Arsenal's Champions League qualifier against Besiktas on Tuesday night with a foot injury.
A fuller assessment of how long Giroud will be out for should come after he has seen a specialist on Tuesday. He sustained the injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Everton.
"Olivier will not play against Besiktas and will see a specialist, then we'll make an announcement of how long he'll be out," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.
