Alex Iwobi Arsenal teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan could reportedly miss the remainder of the season due to the injury he sustained during Thursday Europa League clash with CSKA Moscow.The 29-year-old Armenian international suffered a medial knee ligament injury and was forced off after 61 minutes of Gunners' 4-1 victory over Russian outfit at Emirate Stadium but the extent of the damage could be worse than initially feared.According to Telegraph, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger previously confirmed that Mkhitaryan will miss this weekend's Premier League clash with Southampton, but the latest reports suggest he could be out for as long as six weeks.
"He has a scan but the medial knee ligament has been touched,” said Wenger. “We’ll know more about that soon. For how long he will be out, I don’t know. The first impression is not too positive. I fear [it could be several weeks] and I hope I’m wrong.”
