Initial Tests Show Debuchy Will Be Out For LESS Than 3 Months

By on September 15, 2014

Both the Mirror and the Sun are reporting this morning that Mathieu Debuchy is set to miss the next three months after suffering ligament damage during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

However, the newspapers make this claim despite the fact Debuchy is due to have his final tests this afternoon, so there is no way to know for certain how long he’ll be out for until the results are back in this evening.

As reported on Sunday, reports in France suggest that the right-back will most likely be out for around 2 months, and this is the sentiment taken by the Telegraph too.

The newspaper acknowledges that Debuchy will undergo further tests today but claims that initial scans indicate he’ll be out for 2 months, not three as suggested by the Mirror/Sun.

Obviously losing the 29-year-old for two months will still be a HUGE blow, but it’s a lot better than three, that’s for sure.

We’ll have to see what the scans show today and Arsene Wenger should have an update at his pre-match press conference at 5pm ahead of the Borussia Dortmund game. Fingers crossed for some good news.

    Two months or three months is still a long time and the fact Wenger knew we were short in defence, but did nothing to bring anyone in, once he failed to do his job, we are one more injury away from disaster with no experienced cover, this is why we will not compete for the PL, against City it was defensive errors that cost us
