Gilberto Fear For Arsenal

Arsenal's Gilberto Silva is facing a month on the sidelines because of a back injury, according to reports. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said before the win over Manchester City that he expected the midfielder to be unavailable for a few weeks.

Gilberto has not travelled with the Gunners squad to Norway for the

Champions league game with Rosenborg.

And Wenger is expected to find out the extent of the damage on Tuesday and confirm how long Gilberto will be out.

The problem has been a persistent concern for Gilberto this season.

He suffered a heavy challenge in the Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven and was taken off during the next game against Bolton before missing the trip to City.
