Barcelona sources say Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas could be out for four months after he suffered a knee injury against Liverpool on Sunday. Sport says after being assessed by Arsenal's medical staff, Cesc visited Barcelona club doctor Ramon Cugat for a second opinion and after special consideration, he agreed with his English colleagues that the midfielder would not need surgery.

Instead, according to sources close to the player, Cesc will spend the next eight weeks in Barcelona working with Cugat's staff. The estimated time the Gunners man will be out is three to four months.
