Arsène Wenger has revealed Per Mertesacker will be out of action for “a few months” with a knee injury.

The centre-half suffered the problem during the friendly against Lens on Friday and was left out of Arsenal’s tour of the United States. There were reports the injury would rule out the 31-year-old for up to five months but Wenger could only confirm his defender, who was likely to be Arsenal’s new captain for the season, will miss a sizeable period of their Premier League campaign that starts against Liverpool at the Emirates on 14 August.

Speaking during a press conference before the club’s friendly against the MLS All Stars, Wenger confirmed Mertesacker would miss a “few months” of action. Mertesacker’s injury leaves Wenger short in defence. Laurent Koscielny has been given an extended break after Euro 2016 and Gabriel Paulista currently is struggling with tonsilitis. Calum Chambers and the new signing Rob Holding could start in the centre of defence when Arsenal play a side featuring Kaká, Didier Drogba, Andrea Pirlo and Clint Dempsey on Friday at the Avaya Stadium, the home of the San Jose Earthquakes. © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010
