The left-back limped out of Wednesday night's 2-2 draw with Liverpool suffering from the problem and was replaced by Andre Santos.

"He has a thigh strain that rules him out for the next three weeks. It's a blow for us of course," Wenger said.

"He was an important player for us going forward and the game we wanted to play. It's a shame he's out for the next three weeks."

Gibbs will miss Saturday's meeting with Stoke and a further Premier League clash against Sunderland, while he could also be a doubt for the Champions League encounter with Bayern Munich.

Wenger admitted he may make a move for a replacement on the final day of the transfer window on Thursday.

One man Wenger admits will not be coming to the Emirates is David Villa.

The Barcelona man has been a target of Wenger's but a deal has failed to materialise and when asked if it was dead, he said: "Yes."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
