Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette has posted an update on his injury following a shock knee surgery on Tuesday.

Arsenal surprisingly announced that the France striker who had been expected to start this week against Ostersunds in the Europa League on Thursday would miss up to six weeks of action after undergoing an operation following Saturday’s north London derby.

In a post on Instagram, the 26-year-old appeared optimistic when addressing his injury on the social media platform

"Thank you everyone for your messages, i Will be not on the pitch for few weeks because i feel pain on my knee, the surgery went Well.. a good recovery before Come back Stonger #Coyg #BeTogether #TeamLaca."

The latest news means the Gunners' manager Arsene Wenger has only Danny Welbeck and Eddie Nketiah to rely upon up front for Thursday's Europa League trip to Ostersunds as record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied in Europe with the sale of Olivier Giroud to Chelsea last month now proving a major mistake.
