Arsenal Defenders Gibbs, Jenkinson Sidelined for Game at Norwich

Arsenal defenders Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson will miss tomorrow’s Premier League match at Norwich, manager Arsene Wenger said on the club’s website.

Gibbs underwent hernia surgery yesterday which will sideline him four to five weeks, while Jenkinson has a stress fracture in his back and has been advised by a specialist to rest, Wenger said.

Wenger also said there is no chance midfielder Jack Wilshere, who had ankle surgery in September, will return before the middle or end of January.
