Arshavin out for three weeks

LONDON, April 1 – Andrey Arshavin will be sidelined for up to three weeks, Arsenal's Russian star has revealed after limping out of his side's 2-2 Champions League quarter-final draw with Barcelona.Skipper Cesc Fabregas, who fears he may have suffered a stress fracture in his leg, and centreback William Gallas, who broke down in his comeback match, could both be ruled out until the end of the season as a result of injuries suffered in Tuesday’s dramatic first leg at the Emirates.

But Arshavin’s calf injury does not appear to be as serious, he said on his website,

"Perhaps I won’t be able to play for another two or three weeks," he said. "It is not a relapse of my old injury, this is a new one."

Arsenal battled back from 2-0 down to keep their hopes of a semi-final place alive and Arshavin believes a depleted Gunners squad could pull off a shock win in the Nou Camp next week.

"The rest of the players will play to win," he said. "They showed great character. Barcelona had a good start, but we found our way back.

"There is one more match ahead, and there is still hope."
