Mertesacker to miss final two Arsenal matches

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury, reveals manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal have fallen short of the Premier League title once again but they are still in contention for at least a runners up spot in the table.

As a blow for the Gunners though, Wenger has revealed that German centre-half Mertesacker will not be available for the final two matches of the season due to a hamstring injury.

"From the squad that played against Norwich last Saturday, we have lost Per Mertesacker," Wenger said ahead of Sunday's crunch clash with Manchester City.

"Per is out for the remaining two matches with a hamstring injury. Everyone else from last week's squad is fit and available for selection."
