Mathieu Debuchy has been ruled out of action for three months after undergoing surgery on his left ankle, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The France international suffered the problem in the second half of the 2-2 draw with Manchester City at Emirates Stadium earlier this month and was carried off on a stretcher after falling awkwardly.

And Wenger has revealed that the 29-year-old right-back is likely to be out until the new year after his operation.

“He has had surgery and will be out for three months,” Wenger told Arsenal.com. “A reasonable delay is three months.

“It all went well, but it can be a week or two earlier or a week or two later, but it will be around three months.

“It is a blow of course, how big it will be we will only know afterwards because it will be down to how well we replace him. We bought [Calum] Chambers for that.”
