Arsenal confirm major Calum Chambers injury/Post message of support to defender


Arsenal have this afternoon confirmed that Calum Chambers is set to sit out the remainder of the campaign with a serious knee injury.

Arsenal down United

The Gunners welcomed Manchester United to the Emirates last night, for their latest Premier League outing.

The hosts headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, after being put to the sword by London rivals Chelsea in their previous fixture.

This saw Arsenal’s historically abysmal recent stretch of form reach 1 win in 15 across all competitions.

When all was said and done in north London a little less than 24 hours ago, though, the capital giants returned to winning ways, and in style.

Goals from Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis Papastathopoulos eventually saw Arsenal emerge with a thoroughly-deserved 2-0 win, securing the first 3 points of the Mikel Arteta era.

Chambers crocked

One of Arsenal’s stars to have missed the club’s win over Man United, though, was Calum Chambers.

Versatile stopper Chambers, who had been handed a start at the heart of Arteta’s backline versus Chelsea last weekend, pulled up following what appeared an innocuous coming together with Tammy Abraham with just over 20 minutes on the clock.

After being tended to be Arsenal’s physio team, though, Chambers was eventually forced to limp off, in what looked to be some degree of pain.

Reports subsequently spread over the last few days, meanwhile, that the 24-year-old may have suffered a serious knee injury.

And, in a blow to all associated with the Gunners, this much has this evening been confirmed.

In a post across the club’s social media platforms, Arsenal announced that Chambers was forced to undergo surgery on a ruptured ACL earlier today, and is set for six to nine months on the sidelines:

‘Further to the injury sustained during the match against Chelsea on Sunday, we can confirm that Calum ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee. Calum has had successful surgery in London on Thursday morning. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months. Everyone at the club will be supporting Calum to ensure he is back on the pitch as soon as possible.’

Arsenal followed up with a message of support to Chambers:
