Gibbs (hamstring) is not expected to return until after the international break, manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday.

Gibbs suffered the injury during Arsenal's Premier League opener against Crystal Palace and was originally given a two-to-three week timetable for return, which he will blow through before the international break. The Gunners face Manchester City at home on Sept. 13, but if Gibbs cannot return by then, he may be able to face Aston Villa on Sept. 20.

Gibbs is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his hamstring injury, according to James Olley of the London Evening Standard.

Nacho Monreal replaced Gibbs in Saturday's victory over Crystal Palace, and might be a de-facto starter going forward. Gibbs is a respected starter but probably the weakest player on Arsenal's back line - the defense shouldn't have a major drop-off with Gibbs out.

Gibbs was forced off in the 53rd minute of Arsenal's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, with manager Arsene Wenger saying after the match that Gibbs has either a hamstring or Achilles injury.

Gibbs will undergo a scan to determine the exact injury, but it's a tough blow so early in the season. He was replaced by Nacho Monreal on Saturday, which could also be the situation next week against Everton if Gibbs misses out.
