Debuchy had surgery on his injured right shoulder this week and he will be sidelined for up to three months, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Debuchy has already missed significant time this season after having ankle surgery, making his debut season with the Gunners all but a bust. Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin will see more playing time with Debuchy sidelined.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed after Sunday's match against Stoke City that Debuchy suffered a dislocated shoulder and will need to visit a specialist to determine how much time he will miss.

Debuchy will at the very least miss next Sunday's match at Manchester City, with Calum Chambers the likely replacement, though it was youngster Hector Bellerin who spelled him against Stoke.

Debuchy scored two minutes into stoppage time in the first half of Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

Debuchy's goal, his first in an Arsenal kit, came just two minutes after Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring to give Liverpool a brief lead. The goal surprisingly came during a game in which Debuchy was playing centreback, as he fills in there for Laurent Koscielny (calf), allowing Calum Chambers to play out wide.

Debuchy (ankle) is in the starting XI for Arsenal's Champions League match against Galatasaray on Tuesday.

Debuchy suffered the ankle injury back in September and required surgery to correct the issue. However, he has been training with the first team of late and finally makes his return, though he shouldn't be considered a sure thing to play Saturday against Newcastle following such a long layoff.

Debuchy has been participating in first-team training, but he will not play Saturday against Stoke City, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Friday.

Wenger noted that the earliest Debuchy could return would be Tuesday against Galatasaray in the Champions League, though it remains unclear if he will retake his starting role from Calum Chambers, who has filled in during Debuchy's absence.

Debuchy (ankle) has been training with the first team and he could return Dec. 13 against Newcastle, manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday.

Debuchy has been sidelined since suffering the injury Sept. 13 against Manchester City, but he was a consistent starter before he went down and could slot back in when he's fully fit. Wenger has a history of not immediately starting players who are returning from long layoffs, so Calum Chambers likely has a few starts left.

Debuchy has begun working out in the gym and is expected to rejoin full training by the end of December after damaging ankle ligaments, reports the Mirror.

Debuchy posted pictures of himself working out, and may be available for the third round of the FA Cup if his schedule continues to stay on track.
