Default Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confident Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be back from knee ligame

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confident Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be back from knee ligament injury in two weeks as Gunners see of CSKA Moscow to reach Europa League semi-finals

sbobet thai Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is optimistic Henrikh Mkhitaryan will make a return from his knee injury in two weeks' time.

The Armenian attacking midfielder suffered knee ligament damage in last week's 4-1 Europa League win over CSKA Moscow and there were fears he could miss most of the remainder of the season.

But Wenger struck a more upbeat tone after Arsenal completed a 6-3 aggregate win over the Russian side with a 2-2 draw in Moscow on Thursday night.

He said: 'Yes, [it's a] ligament strain and he should be out for two more weeks. Don't be too worried. We have good medical staff and he's very serious in his rehab.'

Mkhitaryan has played 12 times for Arsenal since arriving from Manchester United in January aas part of the swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez head to Old Trafford. sbobet thai

The 29-year-old has so far scored two goals and contributed six assists during that time.

Arsenal were in danger of throwing away their healthy first leg advantage as goals from Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin gave CSKA hope of an unlikely fightback.

But Danny Welbeck's goal with 15 minutes remaining settled the jitters and Aaron Ramsey equalised on the night in the second minute of stoppage time.

Arsenal will discover their semi-final opponents at 11am on Friday morning with Atletico Madrid, Marseille and Salzburg also through to the last four. sbobet thai
