The 24-year-old has been ruled out of action for at least three weeks with a hamstring problem.

Gibbs was substituted after 53 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace when he suffered the injury.

Nacho Monreal came on as a replacement against Palace and will almost certainly start in the Istanbul match.

Arsenal already have doubts over Laurent Koscielny for the Besiktas tie, while Germany international Per Mertesacker has just returned to training following the World Cup.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
