Gibbs injury takes gloss of Arsenal's North London derby victory

Arsene Wenger hopes injury to England defender Kieran Gibbs will not prove serious following the Gunners Carling Cup extra-time win at Tottenham. The 20-year-old left-back hobbled out after 102 minutes with what the Gunners boss fears could be another metatarsal problem, the youngster having missed a large part of last season and with it the chance to feature at the World Cup because of a similar injury.

"We have to check, that is the only disappointment of the night, because Gibbs had a very good game," said the Arsenal boss.

"We hope we do not get bad news tomorrow morning.

"It is a metatarsal again, it is the one next to the one he had broken, the second one, so we hope we have good news tomorrow morning, because that would be a massive blow to us."
